Leopoldina – National Academy of Sciences

The National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina, founded in 1652, is one of the oldest science academies in the world. It has 1,500 members, who are all outstanding scientists from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and many other countries.

The academy is based in Halle (Saale) and, regardless of economic and political interest, addresses important future social issues from a scientific perspective, makes the results available to politics and the public, and presents these topics nationally and internationally. The Leopoldina and the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities maintain good relations and have decided to extend these.
