IANAS is the Inter-American Network
of Academies of Science.

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.
