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.
In 2021, ALLEA and the Council of Finnish Academies organised the public symposium ‘Across Boundaries in Sciences’. Discover the programme, speakers and recordings here.
The next ALLEA General Assembly will take place in Brussels on 11 and 12 May 2022.
