| remarks = | footnotes = }}The Academia Europaea is the pan-European Academy of Humanities, Letters, Law, and Sciences.WEB,weblink European Academy Organisations Sign Memorandum of Understanding -,, JOURNAL, Dickson, David, 1987-09-04, Toward an Academia Europaea?,weblink Science, en, 237, 4819, 1102–1102, 10.1126/science.237.4819.1102, 0036-8075, 17801623, The Academia was founded in 1988 as the functioning Europe-wide Academy that encompasses all fields of scholarly inquiry. It acts as co-ordinator of European interests in national research agencies.


The concept of a 'European Academy of Sciences' was raised at a meeting in Paris of the European Ministers of Science in 1985. The initiative was taken by the Royal Society (United Kingdom) which resulted in a meeting in London in June 1986 of Arnold Burgen (United Kingdom), Hubert Curien (France), Umberto Columbo (Italy), David Magnusson (Sweden), Eugen Seibold (Germany) and Ruud van Lieshout (the Netherlands) – who agreed to the need for a new body. The two key purposes of Academia Europaea are:
  • express ideas and opinions of individual scientists from Europe
  • act as co-ordinator of European interests in national research agencies
It does not aim to replace existing national academy from respective countries. The objectives were kept deliberately broad covering the humanities, social and natural sciences, so as to ensure interdisciplinary discourse and activities. Initial modalities were to include annual meetings of members, multidisciplinary meetings, an interdisciplinary journal, a newsletter, providing independent advice, improving mobility of scholars within Europe and improving public understanding of science.The new body was named the Academia Europaea and its Foundation Meeting was held in Cambridge in September 1988 under the first President, Arnold Burgen. Hubert Curien, who was at that time the French Minister of Science (and later became the second President of the Academia) arrived by helicopter and gave the inaugural address and provided the active support of the French government. The first Plenary Meeting was held in London in June 1989, by which time there were 627 members.Since 1989, there has been a period of remarkable changes to the scientific, political and economic landscape of the continent of Europe. The Academia Europaea has evolved within this environment, from its origins as an organisation of predominantly "western European" scholars, into a uniquely independent body - a truly pan-European Academy of Sciences, Humanities and Letters. The funding of the Academy is based on an original endowment, contributions from some of the member countries, special projects and by other organisations like the Academia Leopoldina who is also supporting the Academia Europaea financially.WEB,weblink The Academy of Europe: History of the Academia Europaea, 12 January 2015,


The Academy is not a pure science or pure engineering academy. It is an academy that include a range of subjects, covering law, humanities, social sciences, physical sciences, religion, history, etc. Its mission is to:
  • Promote a wider appreciation of the value of European scholarship and research.
  • Make recommendations to national governments and international agencies concerning matters affecting science, scholarship and academic life in Europe.
  • Encourage interdisciplinary and international research in all areas of learning, particularly in relation to European issues.
  • Identify topics of trans-European importance to science and scholarship, and propose appropriate action to ensure that these issues are adequately studied.
The Academy endeavours to; (a) encourage the highest possible standards in scholarship, research and education, and (b) promote a better understanding among the public at large of the benefits of knowledge and learning, and of scientific and scholarly issues which affect society, its quality of life and its standards of living.WEB, Mission Statement,weblink 23 September 2014,


Academic management

The scholarly interests of the Academia are managed through a section structure. On election, all members are assigned to a section. At the present time there are twenty academic sections covering
