Prof. Pierre-Bruno Ruffini, University of Le Havre Normandie, has spent most of his academic career as an economist, with a marked orientation toward international economics. He served as president of the University of Le Havre (2000-2005) and as a counselor for science and technology at the French embassies in Russia (2007-2010) and Italy (2010-2013). Since returning to academia, he has devoted most of his research to the theme of science diplomacy. He authored the first book entirely devoted to this subject (Science and Diplomacy – A New Dimension of International Relations, Springer, 2017). From 2018 to 2022, he served as an expert in the European research project ‘Inventing a Shared Science Diplomacy for Europe’ (InsSciDE-H2020). He was recently invited as co-editor of a series of articles on the subject of 'Science Diplomacy in the Global South' published by the journal Science and Public Policy (2023).
