Abstract [en]

Gender, Quality and Career at the University of Possibilities. This essay introduces the Young Academy of Sweden, established by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in 2011, and highlights three challenges in the current national academic system: gender inequality, the external funding bodies' focus on "excellence" (environments and individuals), and lack of a trasparent tenure track system. In order to attract the most promising young researchers, both men and women, and to create better opportunities for new groundbreaking research in a long-term perspective, the Young Acadmey of Sweden has proposed a tenure track model (funded primarely by block grants), which is also presented in the essay.
