Scientific community/Science policy

The Office of Government Relations (OGR) advocates on behalf of AAAS and the scientific and engineering community to ensure robust and sustained science funding; scientific integrity; diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in the sciences; and science as an international enterprise.

OGR organizes yearly events and collaborates with other programs and initiatives at AAAS — find out more below.

AAAS presented recommendations to the U.S. House Science, Space and Technology Committee on ways to support the research community – including early-career researchers – as it faces challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With a $2 million matching gift to support fellows on Capitol Hill, Joan and Irwin Jacobs seek to boost lawmakers’ access to scientific knowledge.

Two 2020-2021 fellows reflect on their new responsibilities and what they hope to gain from the fellowship experience.
