The Young Academy of Sweden is a interdisciplinary academy for a selection of the most prominent, younger researchers in Sweden. Its operations rest on four pillars: internationalization, outreach, science policy, and transdisciplinarity. The Academy is an independent platform that provides younger researchers with a strong voice in the science policy debate and that promotes science and research, often focusing on children and young adults. In the Academy young researchers meet across institutional and disciplinary borders to discuss research and research related topics.
The Young Academy of Sweden was formed at the initiative of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in 2011 and has about 35 members.
The Young Academy of Sweden's operations is run by a Chief Executive Officer and a secretariat in the halls of The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (RSAS), Stockholm, Sweden.
