Montenegrin Academy of Sciences and Arts (Serbian: Црногорска академија наука и умјетности; Crnogorska akademija nauka i umjetnosti or CANU) is the most important scientific institution of Montenegro.

It was founded in 1973 as the Montenegrin Society for Science and Arts (Crnogorsko društvo za nauku i umjetnost) and adopted its current name in 1976. It currently has 40 members (academicians) in three departments: natural sciences, humanities and arts.

The CANU is often considered and described as a pro-Serbian institution in Montenegro, as the academy' posits the Serb ethnic origin of the Montenegrins. In opposition to this, a splinter group of intellectuals had formed the Doclean Academy of Sciences and Arts (DANU) in 1997, registered as a non-governmental organization, in an attempt to counter the official pro-Serbian academy.

Amid the constitutional reforms of 2007 CANU had resisted the standardization of the Montenegrin language supporting the interpretation according to which Montenegrin is a dialect of the Serbian language.[1] Some of CANU's prominent members have actively participated in the campaign against Montenegro's independence in the 2006 independence referendum. CANU president Momir Đurović had in 2007 maintained contacts with members of the pro-Serbian political opposition, and had visited the headquarters of the Serb People's Party and its leader Andrija Mandić during the negotiations on language-naming in the new constitution. The Academy has also criticized Montenegrin government's decision to recognize Kosovo's unilateral declaration of independence.

CANU is also a member of the Board for Standardization of the Serbian Language and does not participate in the efforts aimed at standardizing the Montenegrin language.[2].

Its membership has included:
