The General Assembly is the annual meeting of ALLEA Member Academies and it will take place in Brussels on 11-12 May 2022. The Royal Academy of Sciences, Letters and Arts of Belgium and the Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Science and the Arts will host the two-day event at the Academy Palace, in the heart of the Belgian capital. The general public is invited to join the event and participate in the scientific symposium ‘Transforming Science’, which will also be livestreamed for digital attendants.
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.
