Sixty Years of the Slovene Academy of Sciences and Arts
Ljubljana, 25 November - SAZU/ANNIVERSARY
The Slovene Academy of Sciences and Arts (SAZU) celebrates its 60th anniversary. Academia operosorum, the forerunner of SAZU, was established in Ljubljana in 1693, only a few decades after the foundation of eminent European academies, such as the French Academy, the British Royal Society in London and Leopoldina, the academy of the German natural scientists in Schweinfurt. Academia operosorum broke off in 1725 and resumed its work temporarily afterwards. The endeavors to set up an academy strengthened in the second half of the 19th century, but the idea was only realized shortly before the World War II.
