“Por el Avance de la Ciencia Nicaragüense”


"Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world. Science is the highest personification of the nation because that nation will remain the first which carries the furthest the works of thought and intelligence."

Louis Pasteur  - (1822-1895) - Químico y Microbiólogo Francés




The Nicaraguan Society of Science is an organization that integrates scientists of all areas of knowledge to promote the advancement of science and scientific education in the country. The society stimulates critical thinking and discussions about relevant local scientific topics.


In this early stage, we propose to take the first steps towards the structuring and establishment of the National Academy of Science in Nicaragua. Currently, we are summoning a group of Nicaraguan scientists with distinguished academic careers who are actively conducting research inside, as well as outside of the country. This group will be incorporated into the organizational phase of the society. Equally fundamental to this process is the interplay between outstanding foreign scientists and national scientists, the former operating as counselors for the latter. The organization will be independent and non-profitable in nature.


We invite to the scientific community and all interested parties to visit this website frequently in order to establish connections and become informed about the activities of the Nicaraguan Society of Science.




·        Promote dialogue between the national and international scientific communities, creating synergy and multidisciplinary groups between researchers of all scientific areas.


·        Support and advise the Nicaraguan government and society regarding the policy-making process and executive decisions about diverse issues of science and technology.


·        Promote the generation of knowledge, contributing to the creation of solutions to specific problems of national interest.


·        Foster scientific education at all levels.


·        Acknowledge, both nationally and internationally, the research performed by Nicaraguan scientists and encourage international collaboration.


·        Contribute to the ongoing struggle to create a modern, honest and just society.





In order to fulfill our objectives, the Nicaraguan Society of Science is continuously working in the organization of programs and concrete activities, such as the establishment of a virtual national library containing influential scientific articles written by national investigators or by foreign scientists whose work focuses on issues important to Nicaragua. Furthermore, we have proposed the development of a newsletter, which would serve as a means for transferring information and promoting public awareness about important scientific topics.
