Applied Anthropology Network (AAN) is the main European platform dedicated to the exchange of information and experiences related to practical applications of anthropology and ethnography. The network enables a circular transfer of knowledge between academia, private and public sectors, NGOs, interest groups, students and other individuals. The network is part of the European Association for Social Anthropologists.
We work as a collective to elevate the discipline of anthropology through a shared belief in its capacity to espouse a free, forward-thinking world whose actions are motivated by and benefit both society and planet.
The AAN consists of regular Members, National Ambassadors, Advisors, Partners and Convenors. The network is organised by a team of three elected convenors who are professionally active in the academic and/or corporate worlds, and are deeply committed to the development of (applied) anthropology.
