About the Science Council

Over the last few years the Science Council has established itself as a leading voice for the professional practice of science, independent of discipline.

The Science Council is a membership organisation for professional bodies and learned societies across science, bringing together a range of disciplines and sectors to reflect the multi-disciplinary practice of science in today’s society.

The Science Council provides a voice on policy and ethical issues affecting the science community, fostering debate and the exchange of ideas across the network. And supporting member organisations to be more effective in meeting the needs of the science community and attracting the next generation into fulfilling science careers.
