The International Council for Science (ICSU, after its former name, International Council of Scientific Unions) was an international non-governmental organization devoted to international cooperation in the advancement of members were national scientific bodies and international scientific unions.

In Julythe ICSU merged with the International Social Science Council (ISSC) to Successor: International Science Council. This first history of the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU), an international arena for scientists which survived immense political, economic and social change in the 20th century, shows how scientists learned to collaborate through ICSU on great co-operative by: Science International is the first history of a worldwide organization of scientists, now involving thousands of participants, which was started a century ago when a few visionaries founded the International Association of Academies ().

This was succeeded by an International Research Council, which, inbecame the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU). The International Science Council (ISC) is a non-governmental organization with a unique global membership that advances science as a global public good.
