The International Science Reserve (ISR) is a network of open scientific communities of discovery, bringing together specialized resources from across the globe to prepare for and help mitigate complex and urgent global crises.
The ISR Executive Board is the governance body charged with ensuring that the ISR achieves its goals by overseeing the mission, policies, and operations of the ISR.

Partners are institutions (university, government agency, foundation, consortium, corporation, etc.) or individuals that have agreed to provide financial or substantial in-kind support to build the ISR’s capacity for response.
A Collaborator is an organization working with the ISR to help enlist scientists, share knowledge or provide other types of support.
An ISR Science Community is a self-governing group of scientific researchers, falling broadly into a single discipline, who develop research proposals in response to crises.
Researchers are invited to join our science community — a borderless global network of leading scientists from around the world. Join the community today to stay updated and learn how you can participate.
The International Science Reserve is a network of open scientific communities, bringing together specialized resources from across the globe to prepare for and help mitigate complex and urgent global crises. We focus solely on preparing and mobilizing scientists to augment existing response organizations.
