The AAAS David and Betty Hamburg Award for Science Diplomacy recognizes an individual or a limited number of individuals working together in the scientific and engineering or foreign affairs communities who are making an outstanding contribution to furthering science diplomacy.
Over the past 28 years, AAAS has honored an international cadre of science diplomacy practitioners whose work lies at the intersection of science, evidence-based decision-making, and diplomacy. AAAS first established the International Scientific Cooperation Award in 1992. The AAAS Board of Directors approves the award since it was renamed the AAAS Award for Science Diplomacy in 2010.
This year, the award has been renamed for David and Betty Hamburg to recognize their unparalleled commitment to the significant role of science diplomacy to advance science, human rights, peace, and cooperation. The Hamburgs were longtime members and champions of AAAS throughout their professional lives. David Hamburg, a renowned psychiatrist-physician, educator, and humanitarian, was elected to the AAAS Board of Directors in 1980 and as a Fellow of AAAS in 1982. He became AAAS president in 1985.
He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1996 for devoting “his life to understanding human behavior, preventing violent conflict and improving the health and well-being of children.” Betty Hamburg, a distinguished psychiatrist and researcher, was elected to the AAAS Board of Directors in 1987 and served on the Board until 1991. In 1992, she was elected a Fellow of AAAS in recognition of her leadership and major advances in adolescent mental health.
The Hamburgs helped shed light on how science can serve as a common language and bring allies and adversaries together through collaborative research to address enormous challenges. They were instrumental in guiding AAAS to become a global leader in the field of science diplomacy and assisting with the establishment of the Center for Science, Technology, and Security Policy, where David served as a visiting scholar. The Center evolved into the AAAS Center for Science Diplomacy in 2008. Through this award, AAAS celebrates the Hamburgs, their exceptional achievements, and their persistent pursuit to further peace, health, and prosperity for all.
