The activities of the Young Academy of Sweden are based on the so-called academy meetings; two-day residential gatherings currently held four times per year. The venue rotates between cities around Sweden and abroad to enable the academy to meet significant people and institutions in their local environments. The academy members convene to discuss and make decisions about the academy’s organisation and activities. New ideas are brought up and explored, members present their research to one another, and different interdisciplinary initiatives take place. The Young Academy invites a wide array of leading personalities from the scientific community, and informal discussions with guests are central to the programme.
