The best science arises when independent researchers are given consistent support to pursue questions they define.

  • provide better opportunities for Junior Faculty to explore new and diverse research ideas in an independent manner
  • avoid the loss of high-potential Junior Faculty
  • communicate with major funding entities and political bodies in Sweden
  • collaborate with other junior faculties in Sweden by working with the National Junior Faculty and the Swedish Young Academy
