About us

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

We set the standards for professional registration for practising scientists and science technicians, independent of scientific discipline. Professional bodies within our membership are licensed to award their members who meet these standards.
