Here you can read about some of the activities that will be taking place during VA’s 20th anniversary year.

The non-profit association Vetenskap & Allmänhet, VA (Public & Science), was founded on 29 January 2002 and is now an established expert organisation for dialogue, communication and engagement between research and other parts of society.

VA carries out activities, studies and advocacy work together with its 99 member organisations that represent both the academic world and society at large. Currently, the association is also collaborating with 50 organisations in 25 countries and is active in a number of European networks.

During our anniversary year, we will be developing a new toolbox on open science, a programme of seminars and webinars, and our annual VA Day conference on 12 October.

VA’s members are both organisations and individuals and we look forward to celebrating together throughout the year, as well as with our international friends.
