The European Academy of Sciences and Arts, with approximately 2000 members, including 37 Nobel laureates, is a knowledge network that addresses significant ethical and scientific challenges in a increasingly fragmented society. Founded on March 7, 1990, by Felix Unger, Cardinal Franz König, and philosopher Nikolaus Lobkowicz, the Academy focuses on future European issues such as digitalization, artificial intelligence, energy, environment, and fostering tolerance in an increasingly tumultuous world.
