AAAS - American Association for the Advancement of Science


The Program DOSER (Dialogue on Science, Ethics and Religion) promoted by the AAAS, has been founded in 1995 in order to facilitate the communication between scientific and religious communities. The aims are:

  • Encourage an appreciation among scientists, religious leaders, and religion scholars of the ethical, religious, and theological implications of scientific discoveries and technological innovations
  • Improve the level of scientific understanding in religious communities
  • Increase the engagement of scientific communities in the dialogue on science, ethics, and religion
  • Facilitate collaboration among scientists, ethicists, and religion scholars and leaders to address critical multidisciplinary issues related to science, ethics, and religion
  • Further public understanding of the dialogue on science, ethics, and religion.
