ALLEA, the All European Academies, was founded in 1994 and is the Federation of Academies of Sciences and Humanities from more than 40 countries in the Council of Europe region.
Member Academies are self-governing communities of scientists and scholars across all fields of the natural sciences, the social sciences and the humanities. They operate as learned societies, think-tanks, grant givers, and research performing organisations.
ALLEA’s objectives are to promote the exchange of information and experiences between Academies, offer European science and society advice from its Member Academies, strive for excellence in science and scholarship, for high ethical standards in the conduct of research, and for independence from political, commercial and ideological interests.
ALLEA’s work includes the societal, technological and environmental challenges that Europe faces and proposes the steps necessary to maintain and expand a vigorous and rigorous science base in Europe. It communicates with political and other stakeholders through Memoranda, science policy advice, statements and reports.
Its policy for science work seeks to contribute to improving the framework conditions under which science and scholarship can excel. Themes include the European Research Area and Horizon 2020, Digitisation and Open Access, Intellectual Property Rights, Science and Ethics, Science Education, Scientific Integrity, Social Sciences & Humanities.
