2024 General Assembly in Berlin: Registration Is Now Open

ALLEA is delighted to announce that registrations are now open for its upcoming general assembly, set to convene in Berlin, Germany, on 22–23 May 2024. This event, celebrating ALLEA’s 30th anniversary, promises a dynamic platform for intellectual exchange and collaborative engagement.

At the heart of the assembly is a public symposium, ‘European Research Collaboration in a Shifting Geopolitical Landscape: How Open Can We Be?’ on 22 May. Co-hosted by the German National Academy of Sciences – Leopoldina, the German Young Academy – Die Junge Akademie, and the Union of the German Academies of Sciences and Humanities, this public event will ignite conversations on the evolving dynamics of cross-border research collaboration amidst geopolitical shifts.

Distinguished physicist Professor Fabiola Gianotti, Director-General of CERN and recipient of the 2023 ALLEA Madame de Staël Prize for Cultural Values, will deliver a keynote address following the award ceremony. A subsequent high-level panel discussion, featuring experts from academia and policy spheres, will delve into the challenges and opportunities presented by geopolitical complexities in scientific collaboration.

The public symposium on 22 May explores pressing issues from the fields of science, society, and policy. It provides a platform for international, interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral debate. Participation is open to all and is free of charge. This is an in-person event. An online livestream will be provided.

In addition to the public symposium, ALLEA Members are invited to participate in an internal business meeting on the morning of 22 May. The business meeting addresses governance, strategy and policy matters and is restricted to member academies’ delegates.
