The national academies of sciences embody scientific excellence and in this respect have the mission to carry out expertise and promote sciences among the political leaders of their countries. The interacademic network that have formed throughout the world act in the same spirit, on a wider scale, though: such is the case with IAP (the InterAcademy Panel, created in 1993, which now is the InterAcademy Partnership) on a global scale and, for Europe, with EASAC (the European Academies’ Science Advisory Council, created in 2001) and ALLEA (All European Academies, created in 1994).
Under the umbrella of the InterAcademy Partnership (IAP), more than 140 national, regional and global member academies work together to support the vital role of science in seeking evidence-based solutions to the world’s most challenging problems. In particular, IAP harnesses the expertise of the world's scientific, medical and engineering leaders to advance sound policies, improve public health, promote excellence in science education, and achieve other critical development goals. A central focus of IAP's mission is to reach out to society and participate in discussions on critical global issues in which science plays a crucial role, and since its inception in 1993, IAP has been producing statements on issues of fundamental importance to humanity.Learn more
