The Center for Science Diplomacy of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) aims to build bridges between communities, societies, and nations through closer interactions between science and diplomacy and elevate the role of science in foreign policy to address national and global challenges.
The AAAS Center for Science Diplomacy currently focuses its core activities around three pillars:
- Community: Build, strengthen, and maintain a community of diverse stakeholders in science, technology, policy, and international relations who contribute to and benefit from science diplomacy
- Capacity: Empower scientists and international affairs professionals around the world to be future leaders at the intersection of science and diplomacy and develop educational tools, training, and resources
- Relationships: Demonstrate and highlight the potential for science to help build relationships across disciplines, sectors, and borders and impact diplomatic efforts.
