The International Council of Science (ICSU) is an organization of international scientific unions (e.g., IUPESM) and national scientific bodies (e.g., the National Academy of Science in the USA). The unions fall into four clusters, one of which is the Bio-Unions.

Since 2010, the Bio-Unions have been meeting among themselves to plan interdisciplinary activities, including

  1. a presence at each other’s congresses,
  2. the joint sponsorship of meetings, and
  3. joint sponsorship of teaching activities.

The 11 Bio-Unions are:
