Congratulations to Sara Strandberg, member of the OKC Steering Group, who has just been elected into the Swedish Young Academy (SYA). SYA is a cross-disciplinary forum for young researchers. Although independent from the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the creation of SYA has been encouraged by it. SYA has already made its voice heard in several important issues for young scientists, not the least concerning a sustainable academic career system.
At the start of SYA in 2011, OKC:s Jan Conrad was one of the firstly elected members. I find it a great honour of OKC that we have contributed two members of this illustrious academic society, which can at most have 40 active members.
