Namibia Scientific Society – Science for Society

The Society

Founded in 1925 as a non-governmental, non-profit members’ organisation, the Society today provides a platform for exchange of information to local and foreign scientists and scientifically interested laymen.
We cooperate with other foundations, institutions and companies and coordinate contacts between those partners.

Documents, books and publishing

Books and documents related to Namibia are collected. This collection is one of the most comprehensive, covering all aspects of Namibia and southern Africa.
The Journal of the Namibia Scientific Society is a cross-disciplinary annual research publication covering scientific subjects related to Namibia.
Kuiseb Publishers produces Namibia-related scientific and historical books, as well as fiction.
You are welcome to subscribe to our Newsletter.

Events and Excursions

The hall inside the historic building of the Society is a popular venue for events. Talks, lectures, film screenings and more are offered regularly by us and our partners.
Excursions of varied lengths are organized for members of the Society throughout the year.
