About the AAAS Annual Meeting

Founded in 1848, the American Association for the Advancement of Science is the world’s largest multi-disciplinary science society, fulfilling its mission to advance science, engineering, and innovation throughout the world for the benefit of all people through a broad array of initiatives focused on communication, public engagement, education, scientific responsibility, public policy, and science diplomacy.

The AAAS Annual Meeting offers a unique, exciting, interdisciplinary blend of more than 120 scientific sessions, plenary and topical lectures, flash talk sessions, e-poster presentations, and international exhibit hall. Each year, the community of leading scientists, educators, policymakers, and journalists gathers to discuss cutting-edge developments in science, technology, and policy.

At the AAAS 2018, the German delegation presented itself as part of the European Union booth alongside 15 other countries. Networking and individual consultations took place at the stand, and Program Manager Gerrit Roessler presented Germany as a research location. In addition, the delegates were able to familiarize themselves with current topics in the field of science policy, communication and research trends in the USA.
