At the closed business meeting, ALLEA governance and policy matters are on the agenda and discussed by ALLEA Member Academies delegates.
ALLEA will celebrate its 25th anniversary in the opening of the conference with a special address on the role of academies in European societies. On this occasion, the 2019 All European Academies Madame de Staël Prize for Cultural Values will be awarded to an eminent scholar or intellectual whose work represents a significant contribution to the cultural values of Europe. The commemorative event will be followed by a festive reception.
Does European science blossom, while European societies ache? What role can European academies play to provide a bridge between the production and diffusion of knowledge to and with Society? This one-day symposium will bring together academia, policy-makers and social actors to discuss academies’ contributions to anchor the underlying values of the Enlightenment upon which scientific progress is based.
