Telesio - Galilei Academy's Mission


The Telesio - Galilei Academy of Science, was established in September 2007. The Academies primary aim is to promote science. There are no economic interests, or considerations to the Academy. Telesio - Galilei Academy of Science for the betterment of science.


The raison d'etre for the Telesio-Galilei Academy of Science and its affiliated Academies is the free exchange of scientific ideas.


To champion the true scientifc spirit, and encourage rational and scientific discourses for no reward other than the betterment of science ; Telesio-Galilei Prizes and medals honoratia are ancillary to provide recognition of and encouragement for scientific work. Indeed, there are many points of disagreement and contention amongst scientific technicalities and concepts; as it should indeed be. That we should regard ourselves responsible as an Academy for upholding the right of rational disagreement as the most important principle governing our assembly.



The Telesio-Galilei Academy of Science Aims and Goals


The Telesio-Galilei Academy of Science has been set up to offer support and encouragement in the quest for scientific truth. It is hoped that it catalyze research in the foundations of physics, chemistry, biology and, eventually, in all other scientific fields. Particular emphasis will be given to supporting innovative ideas consistent with current knowledge and paradigms, but with promise of leading to new deeper understanding. The ideas involved in such research may not be always in precisely the same direction as existing ideas and may, at times, challenge them, and, therefore, they may not be able to
attract support from conventional sources. Hence, one aim of the Academy is to support and encourage original research which is not necessarily restricted to ideas, subjects or
methods currently receiving emphasis.

However, it is not always possible to recognize the value of new directions without connecting them to what has been achieved already in the sciences. The support and encouragement of such innovative ideas, which are not at the centre of the present development of existing paradigms, is a rather delicate matter to contemplate, and carries with it serious responsibilities which may be dealt with only through experience and judgement.
Accordingly, in all cases, the worthiness of the research and its consistency with current knowledge will be judged by a selection of referees and an Advisory Board of well established experts open to new ideas. There are many examples to be found in scientific history where courageous departures from conventional perceptions have resulted in remarkable, even revolutionary, progress; from the Copernican revolution to Newton's realization that velocity was not the allimportant quantity in mechanics, to Einstein's introduction of the ideas of both special and general relativity, to the introduction of the quantum theory. All these examples, and many more, have resulted in our possessing a much deeper and broader understanding of nature and our Universe, but all were initially somewhat revolutionary in the eyes of many at the time.
Initially, an awards program is under way to implement this ideal. Eventually, it is hoped that there will be some funding of special projects which could assist in the development of new concepts that can attract, or increase, support from mainstream scientists and funding agencies. Through such support, the Academy aims to provide a bridge between newly developing concepts and existing paradigms, creating synergy between them that can be beneficial for growth in concert with existing theories, or in totally new directions. Further, part of the role of the Telesio-Galilei Academy of Science in encouraging innovative programmes in a wide range of scientific fields will be to draw public attention to these efforts and to any results obtained. This, it is hoped, will increase comprehension by a wider audience of the problems and also help develop a wider support base. The Academy is devoted to supporting and strengthening mankind's natural inclination and desire to pose deeper and deeper questions with a truly open mind!
