The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) is a private, non-profit society of distinguished scholars based in Washington, DC. Established by an Act of Congress, signed by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863, the NAS is charged with providing independent, objective advice to the nation on matters related to science and technology. Scientists are elected by their peers to membership in the NAS for outstanding contributions to research. The NAS is committed to furthering science in America, and its members are active contributors to the international scientific community. Nearly 500 members of the NAS have won Nobel Prizes, and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, founded in 1914, is today one of the premier international journals publishing the results of original research.

The Academia Raetica acts as an umbrella organisation for the most highly qualified research institutes and the different clinics within the Canton of Grisons and its closer geographical regions. Its goals are to support and coach postgraduate education and teaching and to enhance interdisciplinary research and networking within the associated institutions and clinics.
The impressive potential in medical and technical research, in natural science as well as human sciences, which is already offered should be further stimulated to attract more young and motivated academics and to create better links to the national and international universities.
