Most recently, the EADI team participated in the World Social Science Forum, 24-28 September 2018, Fukuoka, Japan, which was organised by the International Science Council (ISC), of which EADI is a member. The International Science Council (ISC) is unique in that way that it brings together 40 international scientific Unions and Associations and over 140 national and regional scientific organizations including Academies and Research Councils. It was created in 2018 as the result of a merger between the International Council for Science (ICSU) and the International Social Science Council (ISSC) and thereby emphasizes the need for collaboration beyond disciplinary silos that is urgently required to successfully tackle global challenges and #leavenoonebehind in the spirit of the Agenda 2030.
