The Academy is the state body that ensures the practical realization of the country's scientific and technical policy. It was founded in 1951 as the Academy of Sciences of the Turkmen Soviet Socialist Republic. The Academy was closed under president Saparmurat Niyazov, but his successor Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow reopened it.
