Societies / Networks

A learned society is a union of people who are scientifically active and interested in a certain field. Learned societies organize scientific conferences and congresses which cover their respective area of interest. Some issue their own scientific publication or publish journals through other publishing companies. GTI-D has attempted to compile an overview of learned societies in Germany, Europe and also on international level. For Germany alone we counted around 40,000 members of learned societies. This is only a minimum estimate, since exact numbers are hard to come by.
