With their joint activities, the Leopoldina and the Royal Society promote a continuous discourse on current developments in various scientific disciplines. The two institutions also collaborate to provide international policy advice.
The Leopoldina has maintained strong ties with the UK for a long time, and a number of British scientists are currently Leopoldina members.
Together with the Royal Society, the Leopoldina regularly organizes joint symposia with high-ranking participants on a variety of scientific topics, which are open to the participation from a wide range of disciplines. For example, a joint project of the Leopoldina, the Royal Society and the French Académie des sciences investigated the role of European academies in the First World War.
Both academies work together to provide policy advice, for instance by preparing statements in the run-up to the G7 and G20 summits of Heads of State and Government.
