National Synergies

As the German National Academy of Sciences, the Leopoldina has the mandate to join national and international discourses in science and science policy. As part of its cooperation with international partners in various formats, the Leopoldina introduces nationally relevant topics into the international debate. Vice versa, it feeds international topics and issues into domestic discussions, thus stimulating national debate.
