Academia das Ciências de Lisboa

The Sciences Academy of Lisbon (Portuguese: Academia das Ciências de Lisboa) was created in 1779 in Lisbon, Portugal, as an institution dedicated to the advancement of science and learning (particularly mathematics in Portugal[1]) with the goal of promoting academic progress and prosperity to the country. Domenico Vandelli was among its mentors and early organizers.


The Academy has two classes: sciences and letters, and each has 30 full members and 60 corresponding members distributed in six sections. It also has a number of foreign members. The Academy was one of the first national members of the International Council for Science, is one of two Portuguese members of the European Science Foundation and is the Portuguese partner of the European Science Exchange Programme of The Royal Society (United Kingdom).
