Tackling the grand challenges of the 21st Century increasingly requires countries to invent and innovate. To inspire a new generation of inventors, creative strategies and programmes must be devised and implemented. This is exactly the goal that has led two organisations – The Lemelson Foundation and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) – to forge a new partnership. The partnership draws strength from AAAS and The Lemelson Foundation’s missions to serve society and benefit the world. Lemelson is dedicated to inspiring and enabling the next generation of inventors, and AAAS’s mission is to ‘advance science, engineering, and innovation throughout the world for the benefit of all people’.
