The Young Academy of Sweden is an interdisciplinary academy for a selection of the most prominent younger researchers in Sweden. The academy is an independent platform that provides young researchers with a strong voice in the policy debate and that promotes science and research, often focusing on children and young adults. Within the academy younger researchers meet across university and disciplinary boundaries. The Academy was founded in 2011 at the initiative of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and has between 35–40 members elected for five years.
The Young Academy of Sweden's operations is run by a Chief Executive Officer and a secretariat in the halls of The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (RSAS), Stockholm, Sweden.
