A sustainable future: a cross-Society collaboration

We're pleased to present a cross-Society collection around the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

We have collaborated with eight learned societies and membership charities to create a collection of must-read articles to highlight the vital role our members play in delivering on the UN Sustainable Development Goals. We aim to cut across traditional disciplinary boundaries, as it is only by working together that we can achieve a sustainable future.

This unique collection combines articles from both the BSI’s journals, Immunology and Clinical & Experimental Immunology, and the journals from the following organisations:

  • Biochemical Society
  • British Ecological Society
  • Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS)
  • International Water Association
  • Microbiology Society
  • Physiological Society
  • Royal College of Psychiatrists
  • Royal Meteorological Society

Free access to the full collection here. We hope you enjoy reading this collection of articles.

Prof Arne Akbar, President of the British Society for Immunology, said:

“The British Society for Immunology is proud to participate in this unique collaboration between nine learned societies and membership charities in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. A core part of our mission is to disseminate and further the progress of immunological research in order to improve human health. The publication of our two official journals, Immunology and Clinical & Experimental Immunology, enables us to do so, while providing major financial support for our activities.

“The UN Sustainable Development Goals are a call to action for everyone to come together to strive for a sustainable future. By working with our partners to link world-class research and share expertise in this joint collection, we hope to continue our mission and ensure sustainable progress in the life sciences field. At the British Society for Immunology, we are closely aligned with the third goal: to ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages. In particular, we’re proud to publish many papers pursuing crucial targets around maternal health, tackling both communicable and non-communicable disease, and vaccine research.

“We hope to encourage sustained collaboration between scientists and across different organisations to continue the major progress in sustainable development made so far and concentrate our combined efforts to improve global health and well-being.”
