INTER-AMERICAN NETWORK OF ACADEMIES OF SCIENCES – 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.

Networks are powerful instruments for sharing and rapidly disseminating information, best practices and novel ideas through a larger community. By virtue of their credibility and independence from government, academies have certain inherent advantages in addressing issues related to science, technology and health (STH), and in advancing high quality science education at the national level.

OUR MISSION

Is to strengthen science communities in the hemisphere and to provide an independent source of policy advice to governments on key scientific, technological and health challenges.

OUR VISION

IANAS views strong science academies and vibrant science and technology communities as essential to sustainable development in the Americas.
