An academy of sciences is a national academy or another learned society dedicated to sciences.

In non-English speaking countries, the range of Magyar Tudományos Akadémia), however, has members from many other areas of academia. Presumably, the Hungarian term tudomány has been translated as "science" in a broader sense, as it was used in English 200 years ago, and is still used in French and other languages.

As the engineering sciences have become more varied and advanced, there is a recent trend in many advanced countries to organize the National Academy of Engineering (or Engineering Sciences), separate from the national Academy of Sciences.

Academies of science play an important role in science diplomacy efforts.[1]
