The International Science Council (ISC) was created in 2018 as the result of a merger between the International Council for Science (ICSU) and the International Social Science Council (ISSC). It is a non-governmental organization with a unique global membership that brings together 40 international scientific Unions and Associations and over 140 national and regional scientific organizations including Academies and Research Councils.
The Centre International de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées (CIMPA), founded in France in 1978, is a nonprofit organization that promotes research in Mathematics in developing countries. Located in Nice, it is a UNESCO Category 2 organization. It benefits from the financial support of France, Norway, Spain and Switzerland.
ICIAM was one of the partners of the global project 'A Global Approach to the Gender Gap in Mathematical, Computing and Natural Sciences: How to Measure It, How to Reduce It', supported by ICSU and then ISC from 2017 to 2019. To continue and enlarge the work of this project, the partners have established the Standing Committee for Gender Equality in Science (SCGES), which ICIAM has joined.
