Professor Sandra Torres, Department of Sociology,  has been elected to The Royal Society of Sciences,  Sweden’s oldest learned society, founded in 1710 . The Society consists of 130 Swedish and 100 foreign members, divided into four classes: Physical-Mathematical, Biology-Medicine, History-Archaeology, and Engineering-Economy (including Social Sciences).

A core part of The Royal Society of Sciences' activities today is  to award prizes to primarily young scholars, delivered once a year at a public ceremony.  Through a broad age distribution among its members, the society also forms an important bridge across generations.
