The work of the Young Academy of Sweden is made possible by support from funders who want to strengthen younger researchers and the impact of research. Supporting the Academy provides a stronger voice and greater opportunities for new academic leaders to emerge.

The Academy's independence and autonomy is a prerequisite when we enter into collaborations and start projects together with funders and partners, and we openly report all our funders.
