The Academy of Sciences of Albania is the most important science institution in the country, an autonomous body with its own legal personality. It was founded in 1972, but earlier academy origin dates back to 1750. It has 29 Regular Members, 11 Associated Academician Members and 26 Honorary Members. The ASA includes the most outstanding scientists – academicians – who work in research institute or centers, or other science organizations at home or abroad.
After the 2006-2007 reform, the ASA was restructured as an institution that functions through a community of selected scientists (a learned society), reduced in its earlier role as the national institution of science. The research institutes which were under the ASA until 2007, were attached to universities or the incumbent ministries, whereas several other joined together to establish the Inter-University Center of Albanology Studies, with the status of a higher education institution.
