Founded in 1848, the American Association for the Advancement of Science seeks to "advance science, engineering, and innovation throughout the world for the benefit of all people." AAAS and TWAS collaborate at the interface of science and diplomacy, jointly operating an annual summer course in science diplomacy.
Call for applications: BA-TWAS-AAAS Regional Workshop on Science Diplomacy

Alumni will join a global network of young leaders and innovators reaching across borders to address societal challenges and become agents of change in their countries and sectors.
Special consideration will be given to applications from refugee young Arab young scientists who come from countries suffering from war but may be living in other countries.
