Lessons Learned from the EL-CSID Project
This Report presents some additional reflections by the two lead scientists of EL-CSID about what is going on in Europe in science and cultural diplomacy. The focus is on what we learned in those three years of being emerged in studying CSD, and on what we think are now needed, possible and feasible courses of action for the respective Brussels policy communities. This resulted in a wide range of both generic and specific recommendations. The core ones of which are identified here and translated into advice for consideration for the European Commission (EC) and the European External Action Service (EEAS). Needless to say, these are the authors’ options and assessments and may not necessarily be shared by the rest of the EL-CSID community.
