Scientific community/Science policy

AAAS’ Science & Technology Policy Fellowships and the U.S. Department of State have celebrated a milestone in the two organizations’ shared commitment to science-informed policymaking.

As organizations representing a wide range of scientific, engineering, and mathematical disciplines, we will not be deterred by the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on race considerations in college and university admissions.

Non-profit organizations representing the scientific enterprise and medical communities strongly affirm their support for President Biden’s nomination of Dr. Monica Bertagnolli as the director of the National Institutes of Health.

AAAS and The World Academy of Sciences for the advancement of science in developing countries (TWAS), based in Trieste, Italy, are seeking candidates for the AAAS-TWAS Course on Science Diplomacy to be held in-person in Trieste, Italy from 19 June to 23 June, 2023. For the third consecutive year, applications to attend the course are being invited from ‘participant pairs.’

Applications for the course are due March 5. 

Two longstanding AAAS fellowships that immerse scientists and engineers in the worlds of policy and media are now under the same leadership.
