The Academy was founded on 2 June 1739. Among the Academy’s founders were the world-famous naturalist Carl Linnaeus (knighted von Linné), the mercantilist Jonas Alströmer and the mechanical engineer Mårten Triewald as well as the politician Anders Johan von Höpken, who became the Academy’s first Permanent Secretary. The Academy’s overall objective is to promote the sciences and strengthen their influence in society. The Academy’s work began on a modest basis and achieved distinction through the quality of its leadership as well as its determination to promote natural science. Sweden in the first half of the 18th century presented an unusually distinguished array of scientists. The total number of members enrolled in the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences is about 450 Members and 175 Foreign members.Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, independent non-governmental organization headquartered in Stockholm and primarily composed of Swedish members. The main goal of the academy is to promote scientific research and defend the freedom of science. It based itself on the Royal Society of London and the Royal Academy of Sciences in Paris. Through relations with these other academies, the Royal Swedish Academy helps to maintain international contact and communication among scientific researchers. Other goals include keeping the Swedish public informed of accomplishments and discoveries in science and rewarding those who make scientific discoveries. One way in which the academy achieves the latter goal is by selecting the annual winners of the Nobel Prizes for Physics, Chemistry, and Economics. Every year the Academy awards the Nobel Prizes in Physics and Chemistry, the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, the Crafoord Prize and a number of other prizes. International Prizes Nobel Prizes in Physics and Chemistry • Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel • Rolf Schock Prizes in logic and philosophy • Gregori Aminoff Prize in crystallography • Crafoord Prizes in astronomy and mathematics, geosciences, biosciences and polyarthritis National prizes • Göran Gustafsson Prize for research in mathematics, the natural sciences and medicine • Söderberg Prize in economics • Ingvar Lindqvist Prizes for teachers in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics.
