Documents for members


The ISSC is pleased to invite its Member Organisations, Member Associations, Member Institutions, Associate Members and co-sponsored programmes, as well as partner organisations, to the ISSC’s Extraordinary General Assembly that will take place 24-26 October 2017 in Taipei.

The Extraordinary General Assembly will start with a one-day meeting of ISSC delegates on 24 October, followed by a two-day meeting held with ICSU delegates on 25-26 October. The assembly will discuss the proposed modalities for the possible merger of ISSC and ICSU, and conclude with a vote on whether the proposed merger should go ahead. It follows the ‘in-principle’ vote in favour of a merger and the mandate to develop detailed transition plans made during the joint ISSC General Assembly and ICSU Extraordinary General Assembly, which took place on 24 October 2016 in Oslo, Norway.

Please find below a list of documents for the meeting to download. Hard copies will not be available at the meeting.
