Barcelona, 11 April: Presentation of the AEAC (Spanish Associacion for the Advancement of Science)

On 11 April, at 6 pm, the meeting of the Spanish Association for the Advancement of Science (AEAC) will take place in Palau Macaya, Barcelona. A meeting to place the AEAC in the panorama of Spanish scientific associations, starting with their mission to be a pro-science association that, although promoted by the scientific community, is open to citizen participation.

The AEAC has the vision that citizens have an instrument capable of influencing and supporting science in their claims and, why not, able to put pressure on situations such as cuts and increases in the bureaucracy of our science system.

In this sense, the model of the AEAC is based on that of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), which at the beginning of s. XX was also opened to citizen participation.

The different scientific initiatives can be perceived as very atomized, and in this sense the AEAC could be a kind of common and unifying link of all of them along with the citizenship. A partnership with people of reference in different areas of knowledge that respond in a short period of time to demands and questions that arise in society and to which the media can contact in a relatively short period of time.
