ESHRE also works to inform politicians and policy makers throughout Europe. Collaborative activities include co-sponsoring the 2nd World Congress of Reproductive Biology.
International Congress on Animal Reproduction (ICAR)
Founded in 1948 and formerly known as the International Congress on Animal Reproduction and Artificial Insemination, ICAR is a non-profit international organization focused on organizing conferences on Animal Reproduction. ICAR holds a major conference every 4 years in various countries around the world. Collaborative activities include SSR's selection of a speaker and funding that speaker's participation in ICAR.
Korean Society for Animal Reproduction (KSAR)
Founded in 1975, KSAR holds academic meetings, publishes research results and other materials, and executes international cooperation for advancing academic researches, with the goals of promoting academic research and understanding in the field of animal reproduction, and developing and exchanging its related technologies. Collaborative activities include co-sponsoring the 2nd, and 3rd World Congress of Reproductive Biology.
The Sister Societies is the name given to a group of national endocrine-related professional societies that meet in person at least on an annual basis and who correspond regularly (via a listserv housed at The Endocrine Society) to provide a venue permitting discussion of common concerns and possible joint activities on behalf of the field of endocrinology.
Society for Reproduction & Fertility (SRF)
Formed in July 2001 through amalgamation of the Society for the Study of Fertility (SSF) and the Journals of Reproduction and Fertility Ltd (JRF), SRF carries forward the long- standing heritage of the SSF/JRF in being one of the principal scientific societies specializing in reproductive biology, both within the UK and internationally. Collaborative activities include Annual Meeting exchange lectures (SSR New Investigator and SRF New Investigator Scientist), and co-sponsoring the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd World Congress of Reproductive Biology.
Society for Reproduction and Development (SRD)
Founded in 1948 and formerly known as the Japanese Society of Animal Reproduction (2009), SRD was established to encourage the study of reproductive biology in wild, domestic, laboratory, and companion animals. Collaborative activities include co-sponsoring the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd World Congress of Reproductive Biology.
Society of Reproductive Investigation (SRI)
Founded in 1953, SRI (formerly Society for Gynecologic Investigation) discovers, reviews, reports, and transfers new knowledge through creative research and training, community integration, and partnerships that improve the reproductive health of women everywhere. SRI is taking a leading role in international scientific society innovation and, in so doing, provides a strong voice for issues of women's reproductive health and places them at the global forefront. Collaborative activities include an Annual Meeting exchange lecture/session.
World Congress of Reproductive Biology (WCRB)
The World Congress of Reproductive Biology was established in 2008 to provide a forum for basic and clinical reproductive biologists from all around the globe to meet and exchange cutting edge ideas and research findings. SSR hosted the First World Congress of Reproductive Biology in Kona, Hawaii, in 2008, and provides continued support.
