The Royal Institute, formally The Royal Institute for Improving Natural Knowledge, is a Linklearned society and Hanoverís national Linkacademy of sciences. Founded o in the 1800ís, it was made into the nation's topmost authority in education and research through an LinkRoyal charter. The Institute fulfills many roles: promoting science and its importance, recognizing excellence in science, granting research grants, providing scientific advice for policies, and many more.


The Royal Institute was created as a council of scholars and inventors alike to share their knowledge to their fellow scholars, in an attempt of unifying knowledge. Eventually, it branched into the various sciences, with some branches becoming part of several branches of the government itself.

By the late-1800s, the Royal Institute turned from being a forum for exchanging knowledge, to an organization creating and discovering knowledge. It was granted freedom from the Department of Education, which allowed the Institute to 'acquire' numerous ancient universities and schools across Hanover.

The Institute proved its worth during the two World Wars, discovering the means of efficiently manipulating various electromagnetic waves, which contributed with the creation of the radar technology, as well as several 20th century communication technologies. The Institute also housed various technologies that were developed by the Allied forces in the Second World War, such as the jet engine, having successfully tested and used on British and Hanoverian strategic bombers five months earlier than the Austrians did. The Manhattan Project became possible due to the great scientific contributions made by the Institute relating to heavy water, along with engineering contributions in the form of coolant systems for weapon storage and for early nuclear reactors.

In recent years, the Institue has been heavily involved into fusion energy related research. It recently achieved net energy gain with a US team, creating the first step towards fusion energy,
