Official Statement from EurASc

Official Statement from EurASc

Dear Members and Visitors,

 

We would like to address an important matter that impacts the reputation and integrity of the European Academy of Sciences (EurASc).

Recently, we have been made aware of an organization called the Europaische Akademiesending der Naturwissenschaften, which has caused some confusion.

It is important to emphasize that EurASc has no affiliation with this entity. Our members are elected solely based on their scientific merit, ensuring the highest standards of excellence and integrity.


We reaffirm the scientific and moral principles that underpin our academy. All our members are elected based on their outstanding scientific achievements and contributions. Our election process is governed by stringent scientific criteria. Our academy includes Nobel Prize and Fields Medal laureates, showcasing the exceptional caliber of our members. We bestow prestigious awards such as the Leonardo da Vinci Medal and the Blaise Pascal Medal in recognition of exceptional contributions in various scientific fields. Membership in EurASc cannot be purchased. Our rigorous selection process ensures that only the most deserving scientists are elected.

Additionally, it has come to our attention that the Natural Sciences Academy (http://www.eanw.org/news.html), features content primarily in Cyrillic and offers a so-called Leonardo da Vinci diploma. This raises concerns, especially with our Chinese correspondents and relationships. It is essential to note that our academy maintains the highest standards and does not engage in any practices that could compromise our integrity.

We are committed to upholding the highest standards of scientific excellence and ensuring that our reputation remains untarnished.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

 

President and Vice-President of the European Academy of Sciences (EurASc)
