Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities

One of the catalysts for academic research in Bavaria is the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities. Rich in tradition, the Academy has its home in the former royal palace (Residenz) in Munich. Its foundation in 1759 marked the beginning of modern scholarship and research in the arts and sciences throughout Southern Germany, organized and conducted to rigorous standards. Nowadays the Academy distinguishes itself from other research institutions by promoting academic events and research projects designed to secure and preserve culture and language or devoted to primarily scientific issues, thus laying the foundations for future research. It has remained true to its basic principle: to extend knowledge through international and interdisciplinary cooperation among the best scholars in each field.
