The International Academy of Science (IAS) as central body of the International Council for Scientific Development (ICSD) is an independend organisation of distinguished academicians engaged in scientific research, dedicated to the furtherance of science and humanity for global sustainability and universal humanity. It is the central and active ICSD-body which coordinates activities of the sections of IAS as well as of the boards (committees, institutions and honorary senate (members).

Societal problem they want to address

In the IAS-ICSD all today's research areas, humanities and sciences are represented. Main fields are: biophysics, health science, health and ecology, environmental health, environmental education, education for sustainable development, forecasting of earthquakes, global change research, philosophy of science and medicine, planetary health / medicine, physiology and sustainability science.

Basic aim of network

The objective of the Academy is the promotion of innovations in basic,applied and transdisciplinary research and the development of science (scientific development) which could lead to effective and efficient problem solving in the 21 century. Priorities are: to reinforce awarness of scientific responsibility and the social responsiblities of scientists; to develope and support new international, trans- and interdisciplinary approaches; to increase the effectiveness of scientific research (better governance of science); to support a humanitarian approach to science; scientific cooperations between the industrialized and the developing countries; cooperations between scientists and political decision making bodies and support of scientific research; integration of philosophical and ethical subjects into scientific education; to promote public scientific and political discussions on the role of science and future developments. to promote an optimal integration of scientific, public and political goals.


The International Council of Scientific Development (ICSD), with universities (around the world) and member institutions was founded 1980 with its central body the International Academy of Science (founded 1982) by distinguished academicans and scholars with the aim of developing new scientific approaches which could lead to effective problem solving in the 21. century. The ICSD-IAS serves as an international scientific forum for science without borders. Research is made in the institutions of the the ICSD Network.

Research question about translocal networking

To restore the broken bonds between environment, governance, politics, economics, culture and ethics, the regeneration of Earth and the regeneration of humanity should be tackled simultaneously, in space and time, for their mutual support, as sides of the same coin, in view of of the combined role of all dimensions of being in the world (intimate, interactive, social and biophysical), as they interact to elicit, sustain or transform the events. Environmental goals are connected with cultural, social, political and economic aspects and should contemplate a set of values, norms and policies that prioritizes socio-ecological objectives, human well-being, natural and built environments, the aesthetic, ethical and cultural meaning of the existence. The focus should be on the general phenomenon, on the configurations deep inside the boiling pot, where the problems emerge, not on the bubbles of the surface, as they appear in reduced academic formats, segmented public policies, or mass-media headlines.
