AAAS in 2015 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.
Through a “science-diplomacy boot camp,” a global competition, a mentoring program, and more, AAAS promoted international research collaboration, and leveraged research to bring together countries to address broader issues.
Through events, communication workshops, and support for science journalists, AAAS helped to raise awareness of key science-society issues, and made science accessible to all in 2015.
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.
