The Scientific Committee is an international network of experts chaired by Edgar Morin.

Since October 2010, experts and officers of UNEP, ILO, UNOPS, UNDP and WHO also participate in the Scientific Committee.

The Scientific Committee is now part of the bodies of the KIP International School and is recognized as its founding promoter. It is chaired by Edgar Morin and organized with an international direction, a group of senior experts of United Nations agencies and cooperation organisations and a network of experts working in universities and specialized structures, as well as in international organizations. The Scientific Committee has functions for discussion, development, proposal, technical assistance, research and training.
