The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, founded in 1857, is a non-governmental, nationwide body which embraces all fields of learning. Its main purpose is to support the advancement of science and scholarship in Norway. The Abel Prize for excellent scientific work in mathematics is awarded every year by The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters.
The LCI is one of the leading research centers for computer science in the world. Since 1990 it has organized seminars of the highest scientific caliber. The LCI fosters world-class informatics research by bringing together internationally renowned researchers and promising young scientists. Over 3,000 scientists from all over the world attend Dagstuhl events each year.
Every year, the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting brings together around 600 excellent young scientists from around the world with Nobel Laureates. Founded in 1951, the meetings have evolved in over 65 years into a worldwide acclaimed forum for dialogue among leading researchers, for the transfer of knowledge, connecting the global scientific community. The meeting focuses alternately on the disciplines of physics, chemistry and medicine or physiology, in addition, the Lindau Meetings on Economic Sciences are held every three years. As a generous supporter and regular guest Klaus Tschira had very close ties with the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings. In 2013, he became a member of the Honorary Senate of the Foundation Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings.
