What is the Society for Natural Sciences?

The Society for Natural Sciences is a professional network aimed to promote the awareness of inter-/multi-disciplinary activity, which is increasingly becoming of the utmost importance for scientific advancement. The Society is a member of the Science Council.

Why is the Society relevant?
