The African Academy of Sciences  has been elected an executive committee member of the InterAcademy Panel.

The AAS will be represented by President Aderemi Kuku and is among the six academies elected at the IAP General Assembly that took place in Hermanus, South Africa, on 2 March 2016. 

Election into the IAP board will enable it to work and contribute into an organisation whose mandate is closely aligned to its own as the IAP seeks to strengthen the role that science plays in society.
