In English

The Royal Swedish Agricultural Academy was founded in 1811 and installed on 28 January 1813 on the initiative of Carl Johan, Crown Prince as he was then, later King Karl XIV Johan. To mark the importance of forestry, the academy was renamed The Royal Swedish Academy of Agriculture and Forestry on January 1, 1956.


An independent network organization

The Royal Swedish Academy of Agriculture and Forestry is a free and independent organization that works with issues of agriculture, horticulture, food, forest and forest products, fishing and aquaculture, the environment and natural resources.

Financing

The Academy is financed – apart from a small government grant as compensation for services rendered – through the return from its own funds. In addition, the Academy has over the years been entrusted with managing a number of foundations.

Operation

The Academy’s meeting activities with assemblies, seminars, conferences and workshops are an important means of bringing knowledge from the Academy. By gathering for discussion about important problems, opportunities are given for initiatives for measures or activities, which stimulate development.

What is an Academy?
