Members are selected by nomination from across the whole European continent, not only western Europe. Members also include European scholars who are resident in other regions of the world. Current membership stands at around 2,300, including more than 40 Nobel Laureates. Professor Radovic’s induction ceremony will take place in Bergen next September at the Academia’s annual meeting.
