About Academia Europaea
Academia Europaea is a non-governmental association acting as a pan-European academy. Our members are leading scientists and scholars who collectively promote research, learning and education. Founded in 1988, Academia Europaea now more than 4500 members, including more than 70 Nobel laureates. The President of Academia Europaea is Professor Marja Makarow, Professor of Applied Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Helsinki. Academia Europaea operates through a network of regional knowledge hubs in Barcelona, Bergen, Budapest, Cardiff, Munich, Tbilisi and Wroclaw.
About the Cardiff Knowledge Hub
The Cardiff Hub was set up after signing a collaboration agreement with Cardiff University, one of the UK’s leading research universities. We have an ambitious programme of work, through which we intend to strengthen pan-European scientific collaboration and infrastructure across all disciplines. For example, within the new Scientific Advice Mechanism (SAM) and its supporting project SAPEA (Scientific Advice for Policy by European Academies), we have a significant stake in providing evidence-based scientific advice to European policymakers. We are also placing special emphasis on building our network and raising our regional profile. We will develop new relationships within North-Western Europe, including the Celtic nations, as well as the wider Anglophone world, and do so in a way that complements the role and activities of the other Academia Europaea hubs.
