The Royal Society is the independent scientific academy of the UK, dedicated to promoting excellence in science for the benefit of humanity.
Its fundamental purpose, reflected in its founding Charters of the 1660s, is to recognise, promote, and support excellence in science and to encourage the development and use of science for the benefit of humanity.
The Society has played a part in some of the most fundamental, significant, and life-changing discoveries in scientific history and Royal Society scientists continue to make outstanding contributions to science in many research areas.
The Society’s priorities are:
- promoting excellence in science;
- supporting international collaboration;
- demonstrating the importance of science to everyone.
