2017 Celebrate Invention Event

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and The Lemelson Foundation have joined forces to create the AAAS-Lemelson Invention Ambassadors Program designed to celebrate and highlight the importance of invention and inventors.

Through our partnership, we strive to help cultivate a new and diverse generation of inventors and increase global understanding of the role of invention in creating new products and building new businesses, and the importance of inventors and invention education in building economies and fostering innovation.

Understanding the need for invention, the knowledge that invention helps to create and the dual and complementary roles of invention and innovation for 21st century public problem solving is critical–every aspect of our problem solving requirements must be considered and acted upon including talent creation; the skill-set, aspirations and inspiration from our inventors; science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) basic research; and the innovation ecosystem.
