The Academia Nacional de Ciencias (ANC) in Bolivia was founded in 1960 as a “guiding institution of state activity to promote research, dignify scientists and disseminate their work”.
According to the current statute, its objectives are:
- to promote the development of science and humanities,
- to stimulate and dignify scientists and disseminate their work,
- to advise state and private, national and departmental institutions in the study, design and implementation of science, technology and innovation policies, and
- to contribute to the strengthening and operation of the Bolivian National Science, Technology and Innovation System.
The group of academics is indefinite in number and efforts are made for gender equity.
Apart from being a member of the International Science Council, the ANC is also a member of the Inter-American Association of Academies of Sciences (IANAS), the InterAcademy Partnership (IAP), the International Foundation for Science (IFS), among others.
