The Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and Arts (BASA) is a non-governmental organization and an independent civil scientific and cultural institute. It is a successor to the ideas and work of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and Arts established in 1940 by academician Bogdan Filov and dissolved in 1947 by the Prime Minister of Bulgaria, Georgi Dimitrov.

The Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and Arts was restored in 2004 by the scientists Prof. Dr. Grigor Velev, Prof. Dr. Karyu Karev, Prof. Dr. Dimitar Gotsev and Dr. Iliya Iliev at Haskovo Court with the Statute of the eponymous academy of 1940 as a non-profit legal entity.

The main purpose of BASA is to unite the efforts of the scientific and creative potential of the national elite in the service of the Homeland. BASA has established itself as a national scientific creative non-governmental organization in compliance with the requirements and structures of the Academies of Sciences and Arts of the EU member states.
