Science Advice

At-a-Glance

IAP's member academies are merit-based, with members selected from among the leading scientific minds within a country or region. In addition to their honorific roles, academies are vital civil society institutions that have the credibility to inform the public and policy-makers about problems and potential solutions. Their credibility comes not only from the scientific excellence of their members, but also from the fact that they are free of vested political and commercial interests. Indeed, although many academies were established by national governments and tasked with serving their countries by, among other things, bringing scientific perspectives to bear on national and international issues, they were also constituted as independent bodies.
The credibility and independence of IAP and its member academies, as well as the expertise that IAP can harness from within the ranks of its member academies, means that IAP is strategically set to be able to provide expert advice to policy-makers on critical issues at the science-policy interface.

Below is a list of relevant meetings, projects, press releases, programs, articles, statements, reports, forums etc. related to science advice.
