ESF is committed to achieving the highest quality science in Europe to drive progress in research and innovation. We help our Member Organisations collaborate internationally on research programmes that we coordinate in almost every scientific domain. We provide services to the science community, including peer review and evaluation, as well as support to career tracking. ESF also hosts high-level expert boards and committees to support them in achieving their objectives.

Our science policy activities have been transferred to Science Europe which now handles the mainstay of the strategic and policy activities that we initiated and executed in previous years.
