Young Academy of Sweden, now an independent organization, proudly welcomes seven new members. Our new members represent different areas of research: from law, engineering sciences and social sciences to astronomy and particle physics. It paves the way for interdisciplinary meetings, one of the Academy's hallmark.
– As an independent organization Young Academy of Sweden will continue to pursue issues related to science and research. Not least young adults interest for research and to think innovatively. We don't know what the political landscape will look like in Sweden after the elections this fall, but we do promise that Young Academy of Sweden will keep contributing with constructive solutions to improve how research and education are organized and financed in Sweden. Personally I very much look forward to listening to our new members experiences and ideas, and to see what new activities they will lead to, says Martin Högbom, Professor in structural biochemistry and Chair for Young Academy of Sweden.
Seven prominent young researchers were welcomed to the Academy 24 May.
