Slovak Academy of Sciences

 

(Slovenská Akadémia Vied), founded in 1953 in Bratislava as the highest scientific institution of the Slovak Socialist Republic in Czechoslovakia. In 1963 the academy became part of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences.

The Slovak Academy of Sciences continues the progressive scientific traditions of the Matice Slovenská and the P. J. Šafařík Learned Society (founded 1926). Initially, it comprised 14 scientific institutions. In 1975 the academy had 30 members and 37 corresponding members, of whom 21 were also members of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences. The Slovak Academy is composed of 19 scientific boards and about 50 scientific institutions, including research institutes of physics, biology, technical cybernetics, and geology in Bratislava, research institutes of experimental physics, mining, and helmin-thology in Košice, and an archaeology institute at Nitra. The academy employs about 4,000 researchers, including 85 doctors of sciences and more than 700 candidates of sciences, and publishes more than 30 scientific journals. The president of the Slovak Academy is simultaneously the first vice-president of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences. The physicist V. Hajko was elected president in 1974. [23–1707–]
