THE ROYAL SOCIETY OF EDINBURGH

The Royal Society of Edinburgh is Scotland’s national academy of science and letters.

With over 1400 peer-elected fellows, known as 'Fellows of the Royal Society of Edinburgh', it provides annual grants of over half a million pounds for research and entrepreneurship.

At the beginning of the 18th century, Edinburgh’s intellectual climate fostered many clubs and societies, the most prestigious of which was the Philosophical Society, founded in 1738. With the help of University of Edinburgh professors like physician Joseph Black (1728 – 1799) and naturalist John Walker (1730 – 1803) this society became the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 1783.
