Based at the Australian Academy of Science, the regional focal point convenes the scientific community in Asia-Pacific and acts as a hub for ISC Members and activities in the region.

Regional Focal Point for Asia and the Pacific

The Regional Focal Point for Asia and the Pacific is based in the Australian Academy of Science. It began its operations in 2023, and is working to ensure that regional needs and priorities are adequately represented in the ISC’s global agenda, that regional voices are actively engaged in the governance and management of the ISC’s work, and that the region benefits from the results of that work.

The establishment of the Regional Focal Point is supported by a $10.3 million investment from the Australian Government over the next six years.

The Regional Focal Point will hold the Global Knowledge Dialogue with the support of the Malaysian Academy of Sciences in October 2023.
