The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences
Agreement for Scientific Cooperation with the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences was signed in 1974. A postdoctoral exchange program was initiated in 1998.
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, which was founded in 1739, today has 164 members less than 65 years old and nearly 200 age 65 or older.

Members pursue research in: mathematics, astronomy and space science, physics, chemistry, geo-sciences, bio-sciences, medical sciences, engineering sciences, economics and social sciences, humanistic and other sciences.
The Academy bestows awards for outstanding scientific achievements, the most noted of which are Nobel-prizes in Physics, Chemistry and the prize in Economy in Memory of Alfred Nobel.
