The Fellows

The fellows are the Academy’s most important resource. Swedish or foreign citizens, who are known for outstanding insight and experience in the Academy’s area of activity, can be elected as fellows.


Within the academy there are three sections:

  • The General Section
  • The Agriculture Section
  • The Forestry Section

Each section consists of Swedish fellows, honorary fellows and international fellows. They come from research, internships, administration and business, but represent in the Academy their personal competence. Many of them are found among the main representatives of the green industries.

Within each section, there are 70 “rooms” for Swedish fellows under the age of 66 and 25 “rooms” for international fellows under the age of 66.

In addition, there is room for a maximum of 20 honorary fellows.

When a fellow turns 66, he or she leaves his or her “room” but remains a full fellow and a new fellow is elected to the Academy. The fellows are appointed by election of the Academy once a year.
