The AAAS Center for Science Diplomacy is guided by the over-arching goal of using science to build bridges between countries and to promote scientific cooperation as an essential element of foreign policy.
The Center focuses its core activities at three levels:
Since its establishment in 2008, the Center has been particularly interested in identifying opportunities for science diplomacy to serve as a catalyst between societies where official relationships might be limited and to strengthen civil society interactions through partnerships in science and technology. In 2012, the Center launched a new open-access, quarterly publication, Science & Diplomacy , as a forum for policy discourse at the nexus of scientific cooperation and foreign policy.
The Center is grateful for the financial support of the Golden Family Foundation and the Richard Lounsbery Foundation.
