Global Science TV launches today – Participate in the Public Value of Science project 

The ISC has launched a pilot programme in partnership with the Australian Academy of Science called Global Science TV as one aspect of the Public Value of Science project in the ISC Action Plan. The project consists of 15-minute online TV programmes, which aim to share scientific expertise directly from experts themselves, while educating, entertaining and informing viewers on major issues of scientific relevance. Watch the first episode of Global Science TV and contribute to the programme by sharing or embedding the video on your web page, by nominating experts to be part of an upcoming episode, or by using the free content as a springboard to bring in local experts on similar subject matter for national audiences. Suggest a speaker by completing the online form.

The African Scientists Directory

In collaboration with the International Science Council (ISC) Regional Office for Africa (ROA) and the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf), and with funding made available by the South African Department of Science and Innovation, the ISC launches the African Scientists Directory.

The online directory provides information on African experts in the fields of natural and social sciences as well as humanities, engineering and mathematics to facilitate the free flow of scientific knowledge across borders and to promote the formation of scientific societies, academies and sub-regional partnerships within and beyond the continent. ISC encourages its Members based in Africa and with scientific expertise to join the directory. Should you be searching for an African voice to advance your science or to strengthen your scientific union, please browse the online directory.
