I feel so honored and look forward to representing SUA in various contexts, next in Almedalen and this fall on October 21 at SUA Day. Academic freedom and science diplomacy are always on our agenda, as well as, of course, the career opportunities for younger researchers. The fact that SUA brings together researchers from completely different disciplines I see as a tremendous strength, and I am particularly excited to continue exploring the possibilities of interdisciplinary research.
