The International Legume Society was founded in 2011 with the aims to maintain the rich legume research tradition of the former European Association for Grain Legume Research (AEP) and to expand it thematically to forage legume and geographically to all regions of the world.

ILS aims to become the main hub of information and exchange on legume research and exploitation worldwide, linking together the different aspects of agricultural research on the genetic improvement, agronomy and utilization of grain and forage legumes from the Old World and the Americas.

Its major activities include, inter alia, the organization of a triennial international scientific conference, and the dissemination of scientific and technical results by the quarterly international journal Legume Perspectives.
