The Foundation for the Young Academy of Sweden was formed on 24 October 2013 by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (RSAS) and the Ragnar Söderberg Foundation. The third year of the academy has in other respects been filled with activities, including four lively academy meetings, two well-attended academic conferences, a visit from the Young Academy of Japan and a summer research camp for upper secondary school pupils. In addition, the Young Academy issued its first book, which was launched at the Book Fair in September. In a short time, the Young Academy of Sweden has become an attractive meeting place for some of the most outstanding young scientists in the country.

We have had the pleasure, for the second time, of admitting new members, who have enriched the academy with fresh perspectives. We now look forward with anticipation to welcoming more new members to the organisation next year (see page 29). The global Young Academy movement continues to grow. For example, this year we were present at the launch of a new sister organisation in Kenya. We now have another exciting academy year before us, starting with a new round of our summer school “Scientific Encounters” and a hearing on 5 September with Sweden’s general election this autumn in view.
