InterAcademy Partnership (IAP)

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.
IAP’s four regional networks—AASSA, EASAC, IANAS, and NASAC—are responsible for managing and implementing many IAP-funded projects and help make IAP’s work relevant around the world. Find out more about IAP and follow @IAPartnership on Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube.
IAP has produced statements on issues of fundamental importance to humanity and published reports that provide scientific advice on critical issues that confront society. IAP has also supported projects that focus on building scientific and technological capacity worldwide. The Academy is an active member of IAP and has endorsed or contributed to several statements, reports and projects produced by IAP.
