During 2014, the leadership of the InterAcademy Panel (IAP), InterAcademy Council (IAC) and InterAcademy Medical Panel (IAMP) have been planning and implementing the next steps for greater inter-academy integration. A key milestone was a joint leadership meeting held in May 2014 in Rome, Italy, which was generously hosted by the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei with the participation of Prof. Lamberto Maffei, President of the Academy.
Building on an agreement reached at the Rome meeting, the three organizations have worked to establish an umbrella organization, namely the InterAcademy Partnership – IAP, to be ratified by the governance of the three current organizations in the forthcoming months.
