Lars and Astrid Alberger’s Foundation
According to Lars and Astrid Alberger’s will, a foundation was established in 1957, which later became “Lars and Astrid Alberger’s Foundation for the Support of Sweden’s Defence”, (Sw.: Lars och Astrid Albergers stiftelse för stödjande av Sveriges försvar).
The foundation is an independent legal entity and is administered by the Royal Swedish Academy of War Sciences.
The aim of the foundation is to strengthen Sweden’s defence against external and internal enemies.
Proceeds from the foundation are to be used for:
- Giving awards to persons who have performed prominent achievements in the areas of security and defence,
- Suppporting defence research, and
- Supporting publications with a military-scientific content.
