AAAS in 2014 undertook numerous activities to encourage public engagement with science,
to provide policymakers with authoritative information, and to promote international research
collaboration, science education, and science careers.
AAAS provided objective scientific insights, promoted an awareness that science can help drive our economy and improve quality of life, and offered professional-development opportunities for scientists and engineers.
To encourage international research collaboration in 2014, AAAS sent a delegation to Cuba, spurred global innovation through international competition, joined the fight against Ebola, and promoted science diplomacy through outreach efforts.
Through highly accessible meetings and outreach events, AAAS helped to make the world of science accessible to all in 2014.
AAAS worked to ensure that talent and interest in scientific endeavors are always nurtured, and to improve science education for all students.
The three divisions of AAAS serve as regional networks for scientists, providing a forum for them to promote their work and publications, as well as a chance to engage with local communities.
