Scientific community/Scientific approaches/Scientific collaboration

Since White House actions seeking to curtail immigration began to target foreign nationals within the research community, AAAS has been at the forefront of efforts to uphold the importance of maintaining an international scientific enterprise.

Barriers to international scientific collaboration deprive the U.S. of scientific gifts, said AAAS President Steven Chu in an opening plenary address at the 2020 AAAS Annual Meeting.

AAAS President Steven Chu opens the AAAS Annual Meeting with a call for strong ethical standards to drive international science collaborations.

The Caribbean Division of the American Association for the Advancement of Science will meet in Puerto Rico under the banner of “Cienca y Comunidad: Construyendo Juntos” – or “Science and Community: Building Together.”

To get fellows up to speed on communication and negotiation skills and other critical competencies, the AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellowships (STPF) program provides a yearlong series of workshops and events for professional development (PD) that goes hand in hand with the experiential learning that happens on the ground in fellowship assignments.

The AAAS Annual Meeting 2019 teemed with news, learning and sharing – as well as Science & Technology Policy Fellows. Thousands of scientists, engineers, educators, policymakers and journalists from around the world convened in Washington on February 14-17 around the theme of “Science Transcending Boundaries.”
