STINT, The Knowledge Foundation, The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research, The Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research, and The Foundation for Baltic and East European Studies were all founded 25 years ago. At the same time, Riksbankens Jubileumsfond received a capital injection. These foundations have contributed to Swedish research excellence, innovation and growth.

In connection with our celebrations, Klas Eklund has written the anniversary brochure (in Swedish) The foundations at a quarter century: A dizzying ride from employee funds to research funding that describes the foundations’ shared history.
