About Us

The Ethiopian Academy of Sciences (EAS) is a nonprofit and non-governmental organization established to promote a culture of scientific inquiry and creativity and the pursuit of excellence and scholarship in the sciences among Ethiopians. EAS, which was established in 2010 with 49 Fellows, was recognized by Act-of-parliament in 2013 with Proclamation No. 783/2013. As of January 2017, EAS has a membership of 121 Fellows, 41 Associate Fellows and 1 Honorary Fellow, all who have made outstanding contribution to the expanding knowledge in their respective fields. Our Fellows contribute to realizing the vision of the Academy through six Working Groups by undertaking consensus studies, organizing conferences and workshops, recognizing excellence, and providing platforms where the scientific publications of Ethiopian scholars are made accessible to the public. Our Academy embraces the diverse disciplines of science and recognizes the irreplaceable role each play in developing innovation, creativity and enriching the quality of life for Ethiopians and hence has and continues to make a concerted effort to ensure that the diverse disciplines of sciences are, as much as possible, represented in the composition of our Fellows and Working Groups.
