New members 2021

Finnish Academy of Science and Letters invited 37 new Finnish members and 7 new external members on 23rd April 2021. Congratulation to all new members!

 

The Academy has over 900 Finnish members and ca. 170 external members who represent the very top in their profession. It has been the custom since 1919 for the final vote on the selection of new members to take place at the statutory Annual General Meeting in April.

The persons elected to membership of the Finnish Academy of Science and Letters are distinguished academics and scientists, and those choosing them, the existing Academy members, are similarly at the top of their profession. Membership of the Finnish Academy of Science and Letters, in common with membership of any other academy of science, is looked on as a considerable achievement in a person’s academic career.
