The Royal Society of London for Improving Natural Knowledge, known as the Royal Society, is one of the oldest learned societies for science, founded in November 1660. The major activity is to identify and support the work of outstanding scientists by hosting a programme of scientific meetings each year.

The scientific meetings bring together scientists from around the world to present and discuss new research in all areas of science. CUDOS Deputy Director Yuri Kivshar was recently elected to hold a two-day meeting as part of the Royal Society scientific programme 2015/2016.

‘Only a few are granted in Physics by the Royal Society’, says Yuri Kivshar who is looking forward to hold his meeting next year in London, GB. The CUDOS Partner Investigators Prof. Ortwin Hess (Imperial College London) and Prof. Nikolay Zheludev (University of Southampton) will accompany him. The meeting aims to facilitate interaction and communication among scientists.
