International Association of Students in Agricultural and Related Sciences
Founded in 1957 in Tunis by 8 countries, the International Association of Students in Agricultural and Related Sciences is at the moment one of the world’s biggest student organizations and the leading agricultural student association. IAAS gathers students studying, majoring or researching in agriculture and related areas like environmental sciences, forestry, food sciences, landscape architecture etc. Its committees are spread at universities in over 40 countries worldwide.
IAAS is a place where agricultural students from all over the world meet each other, experience new mentalities and cultures, travel and see new places and learn about all aspects of agriculture and related fields of science together with their future colleagues.
The aims of IAAS are to promote the exchange of knowledge and experience, information and ideas among students, and to improve the mutual understanding between countries and cultures. To do this, we organize activities like seminars, working camps, international meetings, exchange weeks, an international exchange program, small-scale development projects etc.
