Latvian Academy of Sciences
Latvia. Agreement for Scientific Cooperation with the Latvian Academy of Sciences signed in July 1999. Two Latvian researchers visited Israel under the Agreement in 2002; and two Israeli researchers visited Latvia.
The Latvian Academy of Sciences (LAS) was founded in February 1946 as a successor of ideas and activities of several scientific unions established in Latvia since 1815. According to the charter of the LAS, adopted in 1992, the main task of the academy is to promote the development of basic and applied sciences in Latvia and promote the cultural and historical heritage of the Latvian people in world culture and science.
In the 1990s, the transformation of the LAS into a West European academy was completed by electing new foreign members and introducing new forms of activities. The academy has 3 divisions and a current membership of 327, including 95 full members, 90 corresponding members, 50 honorary members, and 97 honorary members.
