ANZAAS - The Australian and New Zealand Association for the Advancement of Science
Founded in 1888, ANZAAS has a long history and many specialist scientific societies in Australia and New Zealand have developed from what were sections at ANZAAS Congresses.
The aims of the association are:
• to promote communication and interaction between scientists in different disciplines
• to foster public interest in science and technology, and awareness of their role in every day life
• to encourage the curiosity of children about the natural and man-made world around them.
