The Nigerian Academy of Science was inaugurated on 8th of January 1977 by an initial group of forty-two Foundation Fellows comprising distinguished scientists in the pure and applied sciences. The Academy has since grown in membership and diversity into the highest scientific ‘honor society’ in Nigeria.
Since inception, the Academy has operated as a voluntary organization, independent of government control, but collaborating with the government in the growth and development of science and technology in Nigeria. NAS is a founding member of Network of African Science Academies (NASAC) and participant of the African Science Academy Development Initiative (ASADI, launched in 2004 by the U.S. National Academies and funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
 The Nigerian Academy of Science is the body of foremost Nigerian Scientists with membership now including experts in various fields of physical and biological sciences.
 It is a non-governmental organization and member of the Inter-Academy Panel (IAP), an umbrella for over ninety science academies worldwide.
 The Academy is a merit-based academy that has both service and honorific roles.
The service role of the Academy can be summarized as the provision of evidence-based and unbiased advice to government and the public while also stimulating the development of science in the country.
 On the other hand in her honorific role, a few highly distinguished scientists are elected annually and inducted as Fellows of the Academy.
 The Academy has a history of organizing public events which help to bridge the gap between science and the society.
 (These include public lectures, workshops, media roundtables, and the NAS Science Media Award).
