The Council is EASAC's full assembly and governing body.  It is composed of 29 highly experienced scientists - one representative from each member academy acting in their personal capacity. ALLEA, the federation of all academies in geographical Europe, is also represented by its president.

Council sets EASAC's direction, agrees the initiation of projects, monitors their progress and reviews and approves reports for publication.

Council meets every 6 months, usually at the Academy of the EU member state which is in line to take over the EU's Presidency six months later.
