The Council is EASAC's full assembly and governing body. It is composed of 30 highly experienced scientists - one representative from each member academy.
Council meets every 6 months and is usually hosted by the National Science Academy of the EU Member State which is in line to take over the EU Presidency two months later.
Council sets EASAC's direction, agrees the initiation of projects, monitors their progress and reviews and approves reports for publication. EASAC works on the assumption that Council members closely consult with their nominating academies.
Apart from the National Science Academies of the EU Member States, Norway, Switzerland and United Kingdom, Academia Europaea (a pan-European Academy) and ALLEA (the federation of all academies in geographical Europe) are also represented in EASAC Council.
FEAM, the Federation of European Academies of Medicine, has Observer status in Council.
