The Learned Society of Wales (LSW) is an independent, all-Wales, self-governing, pan-discipline educational charity.

The Society, Wales’s first national academy of science and letters was established in 2010, and draws upon the considerable strengths of over 400 distinguished Fellows based in Wales, the UK and beyond. It provides public benefit including expert scholarly advice on a variety of public policy issues related to science, engineering, medicine, arts, humanities and social sciences.

By 2018, the Society aims to develop itself as a  ‘sustainable organisation that is fit for purpose and acknowledged both as the recognised representative of the world of Welsh learning internationally and as a source of authoritative, scholarly and critical comment and advice on policy issues affecting Wales’.

The Call for nominations for the Menelaus, Dillwyn and Frances Hoggan 2016/17 medals are now open.
