IANAS is a regional network of Academies of Sciences created to support cooperation towards the strengthening of science and technology as a tool for advancing research and development, prosperity and equity in the Americas.
Founded in the spirit of IAP in May 2004, the main objectives of the network are: (a) to assist in the building of national scientific capacities by strengthening science and technology relationships among the countries of the Americas, as a tool for societal development; (b) to cooperate in building capacities of the Academies of the region, through exchange of information and experience; (c) to aid in the creation of new Academies in those countries of the Americas desiring assistance in the establishment of a Science Academy; and (d) to influence the scientific decision-making processes in the Americas, with the goal of promoting prosperity and equity in the hemisphere.
Linking and strengthening the scientific community in the hemisphere, IANAS plays a major role in contributing to the promotion of scientific capacity and excellence for sustainable development in the Americas.
