InterAcademy Council (IAC)

The InterAcademy Council (IAC) advises international and supranational organisations and national governments on the scientific and technological dimensions of issues with a global or regional impact.

The IAC assembles international panels of experts and is supported by its member academies.

The IAC has published seven major studies so far:

In 2009, the IAC Board agreed on a new programme of studies. These will focus on: improving global water quality and availability; better worldwide surveillance of emerging infectious diseases; and building capacity for national innovation at African universities. The Academy and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) will play a leading role in one of the water-related studies.
