GID

The Inter-academic Group for Development has been created to reinforce the links between science, professional practice and social expectations, within the context of the mandate of the Academies: spread scientific knowledge within society, share science, in keeping with excellence, impartiality and independance.

Basic Principles

- Academic excellence and independence
- Inter-disciplinary and integrated vision of Development
- Internationally based approach

Mission

- Promote Education *- Health for Women-Women Health Education Programme, WHEP (www.whep.info) *- through reflection and expertise: the Avicenne Group
- Promote excellence for S&T senior staff through a programme: “Sciences, professions, societies”
- Foster a Mediterranean Scientific Area and a Mediterranean Inter-Academic Network (PARMENIDES)

Action Principles

One ambition

Reinforce the links between science, professional practice and social expectations, within the context of the mandate of the Academies: spread scientific knowledge within society, share science, in keeping with excellence, impartiality and independence.
