Iraqi Academy of Sciences

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Iraqi Academy of Sciences (Arabic: المجمع العلمي العراقي) is an academy in Baghdad founded in 1948 in order to develop and regulate the Arabic language in Iraq and the Arab World.

The Academy also has two other departments to regulate and develop Kurdish and Aramaic (Syriac) in Iraq; those two departments were founded in 1963.

It was looted during the 2003 invasion of Iraq.[1]
