This information has been summarised from The Royal Society's website.

The Royal Society, the national academy of science of the UK and the Commonwealth, is at the cutting edge of scientific progress.

It supports many top young scientists, engineers and technologists. It influences science policy, it debates scientific issues with the public and much more. It is an independent, charitable body which derives its authoritative status from its 1400 Fellows and Foreign Members.

The Royal Society was founded in 1660 by scientists including Robert Boyle, John Wilkins and Christopher Wren. Since its early history, the Society has elected scientists, engineers and technologists to its Fellowship. 

As the UK’s independent national academy of science, the Royal Society promotes excellence in science, engineering and technology, both in the UK and internationally. The Society encourages public debate on key issues involving science, engineering and technology and the use of high-quality scientific advice in policy-making. We are committed to delivering the best independent advice, drawing upon the expertise of the Society’s Fellows and Foreign Members and the wider scientific community.

The Royal Society’s objectives are to:

• recognise excellence in science
• support leading-edge scientific research and its applications
• stimulate international interaction
• further the role of science, engineering and technology in society
• promote education in the sciences and actively engage the public in scientific issues
• provide independent authoritative advice on matters relating to science, engineering and technology
• encourage research into the history of science
