The initial steps for establishing ILSI and its ultimate incorporation over 30 years ago were made in the United States. From inception, however, ILSI's outlook has been international. While ILSI always recognized that health and science are borderless concepts it also realizes that decision are often made locally or regionally. ILSI's network is consciously designed so that science - no matter where it is generated - can be applied in national or regional context.
Today, 14 regional, or country specific branches; the ILSI Research Foundation; ILSI Health and Environmental Sciences Institute; the ILSI International Food Biotechnology Committee; and the International Organizations Committee work together to provide a flexible mechanism for identifying emerging issues, fostering a harmonized use of science in the decision-making process, and building scientific capacity at the local level.
