The Academy promotes and supports research by funding research projects, research positions, publications, symposia, conferences, projects in internationalisation and digitisation, travel grants, and scholarships.
The Academy concentrates its research funding on collaborative projects by its members, universities, scholarly works, cultural heritage organisations, and other research funding bodies. Vitterhetsakademien often supports long-term projects that cannot be financed with public funds. Many conferences and symposia funded by Vitterhetsakademien are held in Rettig House in Stockholm. The majority are published in The Academy’s conference proceedings publications.
