International Science Council

The ISC (International Science Council) launched in July 2018 as the result of a merger between the International Council for Science (ICSU) and the International Social Science Council (ISSC). Since IUBS was a member of ICSU, it now is member of ISC.

ISC brings together 40 international scientific Unions and Associations and over 140 national and regional scientific organizations including Academies and Research Councils. It is the only international non-governmental organization bringing together the natural and social sciences and the largest global science organization of its type.
