Comments / picturesThe Royal Society of Sciences at Uppsala is Sweden’s oldest learned society, founded in 1710 by Erik Benzelius the Younger, after the model of similar learned societies on the continent. The aim of the Society was to acquire, develop, and circulate knowledge primarily within the natural societies which at this time became of increasing importance; this acquisition of learning was accomplished through mutual contacts between the members of the society and exchanges with colleagues abroad.
