About the General Assembly
The ALLEA General Assembly annually convenes academies of sciences and humanities from 40 countries across the Council of Europe region. General Assemblies are hosted by ALLEA members and the programme typically consists of the (internal) business meeting of academy delegates, and a scientific symposium open to public audiences.
The symposium addresses and discusses pressing topics from the fields of science, society and policy, provides a platform for international, interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral debate, and particularly seeks to attract and engage the wider public.
The business meeting is restricted to member academy delegates and discusses governance, strategy and policy matters.
On the occasion of ALLEA General Assemblies, the All European Academies Madame de Staël Prize for Cultural Values is awarded to an eminent researcher or intellectual whose work represents a significant contribution to the furthering of common European values.
