The KHMW is the oldest Learned Society of the Netherlands and was established in 1752 with the aim to promote science in the broadest sense. Between 1754 and 1793, the society published the complete works of Christiaan Huygens. The KHMW manages four funds used for granting incentive prizes, funding a university chair and for organizing outreach activities, such as conferences and lecture series. Another important activity is issuing contests on current scientific topics. The members of the KHMW form the basis and network of which the society pursues its objectives. In doing so, the society and its members work closely with the National Think Tank and other organizations.
