Beginning in 1989, the Kavli Frontiers of Science symposium series has provided a forum for the future leaders in US science to share ideas across disciplines and to build contacts and networks that will prove useful as they advance in their careers. More than 4,500 young scientists have attended Kavli Frontiers of Science symposia, 136 of whom have been elected to the NAS and eight of whom have been awarded the Nobel Prize.
The Kavli Frontiers of Science symposium is sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences. Major support is provided by the Kavli Foundation, with additional funding from the National Academy of Sciences.
The National Academy of Sciences is a private organization of scientists and engineers dedicated to the furtherance of science and its use for the general welfare. It was established in 1863 by a congressional act of incorporation signed by Abraham Lincoln that calls on the Academy to act as an official adviser to the federal government, upon request, in any matter of science or technology.
