The International Union of Prehistoric and Protohistoric Sciences (Union Internationale des Sciences Préhistoriques et Protohistoriques – UISPP) was founded on May 28th, 1931, in Bern, and groups together all the sciences related to prehistoric and protohistoric studies: archaeology, anthropology, palaeontology, geology, zoology, botany, environmental sciences, physics, chemistry, geography, history, numismatics, epigraphy, mathematics and other.

Research into the mechanisms of adaption and the dynamics of human societies lies at the heart of the IUPPS’s scientific interest. The IUPPS therefore periodically organises a world congress of prehistoric and protohistoric sciences. At these world congresses the progress made with regard to the state of knowledge is presented and common research objectives are defined. To this end, the IUPPS creates scientific commissions devoted to specific research issues.

UISPP has been a member of the UNESCO associate International Council of Philosophy and Human Sciences since 1955.
