Tove Fall new elected member of "Sveriges unga akademi"


Docent Tove Fall, Dept. of Medical Sciences,  has been elected to "Sveriges unga akademi" (“Swedens young academy”). As a member she will work e.g. to strengthen the quality of Swedish research. "Sveriges unga akademi" is a multidisciplinary academy for a selection of the best young researchers in Sweden. The main activities are multidisciplinary science, research policy, and outward-looking activities. The academy is an independent platform that provides young researchers with a strong voice in research policy debate and brings research to the young.

Tove Fall says, regarding this mission:
I am very honored and excited to become a member of "Sveriges unga akademi". I am already engaged in issues regarding transparent decision making in distribution of internal and external research funding and positions. That the best fit individuals/environments should get granted is not just a matter of fairness, it’s a matter of quality and a key to success for Sweden as a research nation.  Through my work in "Sveriges unga akademi" I will get a platform that gives me an influence in these matters.

New head of "Sveriges unga akademi" is another Uppsala researcher, Maria Tenje, Docent in micro systems technology. You can read more about the new members in  "Sveriges unga akademi" here .
