IDC is an interdisciplinary association of scientists from a variety of different scholarly disciplines, such as physics, biology, social and political sciences. Our aim is to promote international scientific exchange and cooperation in order to tackle global, environmental and socio-economic challenges.
In this regard, IDC prepares, implements and coordinates various national and international research projects, partly funded under the research framework programme of the European Commission.
IDC consists of several working groups with different thematic focuses such as sustainable energy, synthetic biology, biosafety, food security and institutional development.
One of the main goals of IDC is to increase public awareness of new scientific developments and its societal ramifications, to stimulate debate and exchange of ideas and perspectives. Within this approach, IDC organises public information events on issues of global concern.
