2017 Joint Meeting of ISSC and ICSU members
Following an in-principle decision to pursue the idea of a merger, taken in Oslo in October 2016, ICSU and ISSC members met again in Taipei on 25-26 October 2017. This meeting was held in the context of the 32nd ICSU General Assembly and the IVth ISSC Extraordinary General Assembly.
During the Taipei meeting Members of the two organizations reviewed the proposed arrangements and strategy for a new organization and, on that basis, voted in favour of the proposed merger.
The 32nd ICSU General Assembly took place prior to the Joint Meeting. The Assembly formally opened at mid-day on 23 October and concluded in the evening of 24 October.
The IVth ISSC Extraordinary General Assembly took place on 24 October. More information is available on the ISSC website.
