Our latest website design is for The Royal Society of Tasmania.
Drawing its inspiration from the illustrious original Royal Society founded in London in 1660, The Royal Society of Tasmania is the oldest royal society outside the United Kingdom, having had a continuing existence since 1843.
The Society is currently based in the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, Hobart, (Davey Street Entrance). The Society’s Library is based within the University of Tasmania Morris Miller Library, Sandy Bay Campus.
The mission of The Royal Society of Tasmania is “The advancement of knowledge” and its priorities are:
- Promoting Tasmanian historical, scientific and technological knowledge for the benefit of Tasmanians,
- Fostering Tasmanian public engagement and participation in the quest for objective knowledge,
- Recognising excellence in academia and supporting Tasmanian academic excellence, and
- Providing objective advice for policy relating to Tasmanian issues.
The membership of The Royal Society of Tasmania is open to all and members coming from many walks of life, have a variety of interests and they will value the opportunity to meet, hear and talk to specialists with knowledge beyond their individual fields of interest.
