Carl Folke elected to the U.S. National Academy of Sciences
Recognised for "distinguished and continuing achievements in original research"
Centre science director Carl Folke has been elected as a Foreign Associate to the US National Academy of Sciences. He joins a prestigious list of approximately 2300 members of whom some 200 have received Nobel prizes.
Membership is a widely accepted mark of excellence in science and is considered one of the highest honors that a scientist can receive.
Because membership is achieved by election, there is no membership application process. Although many names are suggested informally, only Academy members may submit formal nominations. Consideration of a candidate begins with his or her nomination, followed by an extensive and careful vetting process that results in a final ballot at the Academy's annual meeting in April each year.
Currently, a maximum of 84 members may be elected annually. Members must be U.S. citizens; non-citizens are elected as foreign associates, with a maximum of 21 elected annually.
The National Academy of Sciences was established under a congressional charter signed by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863. It provides science, engineering, and health policy advice to the U.S government and other organizations.
Arild Underdal, the former Chair of the Stockholm Resilience Centre board was also among the newly elected Foreign Associates.
Carl Folke is science director and co-founder of the Stockholm Resilience Centre (SRC). He has extensive experience in transdisciplinary collaboration between natural and social scientists and is among the most cited scientists in the world on resilience thinking
