ISC Annual Report 2018

With the creation of the International Science Council, 2018 marked a milestone in the world of international science. Our Annual Report is now available to download.

ISC Annual Report 2018

As we publish our first Annual Report, it is appropriate to reflect on the process that led to the merger of our two predecessor organizations, the International Social Science Council (ISSC) and the International Council for Science (ICSU).

We acknowledge and thank all our members for their support of the merger: those who served on task teams to prepare the process; the individuals who served on our executive boards and committees; leaders of unions and associations, regional and national committees; members of the Secretariat past and present; and more widely the supporters and critical friends who have helped us shape the vision and mission of the International Science Council.

Of special note in our Annual Report for 2018 are two essays, one exploring “A global voice for science in the contemporary world“, adapted from Craig Calhoun’s speech at the opening celebrations of the ISC in July 2018, and one from Ismail Serageldin, “Confronting the Problems of Our Time“, who was also in attendance at our launch and is now an ISC Patron.

The ISC invites you to download our Annual Report in full, or mobile-friendly version.
