The General Assembly annually convenes academies of sciences and humanities from 40 countries across the Council of Europe region. General Assemblies are hosted by ALLEA Member Academies and the programme typically consists of the internal business meeting of academy delegates, and a scientific symposium open to the public. The symposium explores pressing topics from the fields of science, society and policy, and provides a platform for international, interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral debate. The business meeting addresses governance, strategy and policy matters and is restricted to Member Academies’ delegates.
The next ALLEA General Assembly will take place on 22–23 May 2024 in Berlin, Germany. It will be hosted by its three German academies: German National Academy of Sciences – Leopoldina, Union of the German Academies of Sciences and Humanities, and German Young Academy – Die Junge Akademie.
