Washington DC

About this Chapter

The ASCINA Chapter of Greater Washington, DC, which also includes the Baltimore area, is among the oldest ASCINA chapters.

Description

ASCINA DC members work at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), NASA, the International Monetary Found, the Smithsonian Institution, the World Bank, University of Maryland, Johns Hopkins University, Georgetown University, George Washington University, American University, Virginia Tech, think tanks and non-profit organizations. Due to the proximity to the Austrian Embassy we have close ties with the Office of Science and Technology (OST), which also organizes scientific events on a regular basis.

We meet regularly for scientific and social activities.
