Institut Mittag-Leffler was founded in 1916 by Professor Gösta Mittag-Leffler and his wife Signe, who donated their magnificent villa, with its first-class library, as a mathematics research institute to the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.

The institute is the oldest mathematical research institute in the world. Its premises encompass several buildings on a park-like estate. The main building, originally the home of Gösta and Signe, is a beautifully preserved villa in art nouveau style.
