The International Eurasian Academy of Sciences (IEAS) has been established in 1994 on the initiative of several eminent scientists of Europe and Asia. The IEAS is a public body bringing together scientists and scholars of culture, art and religion for solving environmental and social challenges shared by the Eurasian countries.
The IEAS mission consists in fostering the efforts of scientific communities to address global problems induced by the urbanization and to develop transition paths to sustainable development in the socioeconomic and moral spheres of public life through consolidating the potential of scientists and scholars.
The IEAS priorities:
The IEAS particularly aims at:
The main IEAS structural units are the Branches and the Research Centres. The IEAS Branches unite its members by scientific fields, while the Research Centres are created on the territorial principle.
There are three main IEAS Centres – European (headquarters in Helsinki), Eurasian (headquarters in Moscow), and Asian-Pacific (headquarters in Beijing), which will include multiple sub-structures in the form of National Centres with thematic branches (science, culture, religion).
The IEAS Headquarter is based at the location of the IEAS President. The highest IEAS governing body is the Assembly of its members. The Assembly shall review and approve the major lines of the IEAS activities, the attained results, the Presidium reports and the conclusions of the Audit Commission. The Assembly is authorized to consider and resolve any issues related to the IEAS functioning.
During the period between the Assemblies the IEAS is governed by the Presidium, which is elected by the Assembly for a five-year term. The Presidium consists of the President, Past-President, the Presidents of the Regional Centres, Vice-President, Chief Scientific Secretary, the Presidents of large National Centres (no less than 30 members). The Presidium is entitled to make decisions on any IEAS matters, except those within the competence of the Assembly. To address the IEAS current issues the Bureau of Presidium is formed within the Presidium by a part of its members.
