The International Academy of Quantum Molecular Science was founded in Menton in 1967. The members are chosen among the scientists of all countries in the field of quantum molecular sciences. The Academy has as its main goal to provide a forum for international contact and collaboration and a periodical evaluation of the main developments, advances and promising direction of research in the broad field of its interests. One of the main initiatives of the Academy is the organization of a series of International Congresses in Quantum Chemistry, with an interval of three years. Another initiative of the Academy consists of an annual attribution of a medal to a young member of the scientific community who has distinguished himself/herself by a pioneering and important contribution.

The Academy is governed by an elected bureau (three years period). The present officers (2015–2018)
