Singapore National Academy of Science (SNAS)

Singapore National Academy of Science (SNAS) coexisted with IPS, SNIC, SMS and SIBiol as a learned society to promote and popularise science and technology in Singapore in 1967. At that point, SNAS was responsible for the publication of the SNAS journal, and additionally sort out the SNAS congress.

At some point in the mid-seventies, the four societies were integrated into SNAS. At some point in the mid-seventies, the four societies were integrated into SNAS.There was a possibility that the individual societies will disappear and their members would become individual members of SNAS under different sections i.e. physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology; or maybe the societies would remain with members having dual membership of their society and SNAS.

Just about ten years after the fact in 1975, a thought was to Dr Lee Chiaw Meng who was then the Minister for Education, to make SNAS to be a federation of societies. SNAS will become the professional and academic body for Singapore Scientists. Officially founded in 1976, SNAS became an umbrella organisation with the dual objectives of:

-promoting the advancement of science and technology in Singapore
- representing the scientific opinions of its members.
- When SNAS was reconstituted, its earlier role was then taken over by the Singapore Association for the Advancement of Science.
