About IANAS

IANAS is a regional network of Academies of Sciences created to support cooperation towards the strengthening of science and technology as a tool for advancing research and development, prosperity and equity in the Americas.

Founded in the spirit of IAP in May 2004, the main objectives of the network are:

  1. to assist in the building of national scientific capacities by strengthening science and technology relationships among the countries of the Americas, as a tool for societal development;
  2. to cooperate in building capacities of the Academies of the region, through exchange of information and experience;
  3. to aid in the creation of new Academies in those countries of the Americas desiring assistance in the establishment of a Science Academy; and
  4. to influence the scientific decision-making processes in the Americas, with the goal of promoting prosperity and equity in the hemisphere.

Linking and strengthening the scientific community in the hemisphere, IANAS believes it may play a major role in contributing to the promotion of scientific capacity and excellence for sustainable development in the Americas.

The Executive Committee will ensure the continuity between two successive meetings of the General Assembly, implement the recommendations of the previous one, prepare the program of the next one, and represent IANAS through its Co-Chairs or one of its members during the time between two General Assemblies. The Executive Committee is in charge of the relations of IANAS with international institutions. The Executive Committee should follow general guidance from the previous General Assembly, and with potentially contentious issues should consult the member Academies most closely involved. All the actions of the Executive Committee will be communicated to member Academies in a timely manner.
