This spring, the Young Academy of Sweden launched its vision for 2030, where one of the goals is for Swedish academia to be characterized by ”freedom and responsibility”. At the academy's seminar in Almedalen, it was discussed what qualities and conditions future academic leaders need to have in order for such a system to be achieved.
