The campaign included a co-design process working with the Global Young Academy, and directly with other young academies in identifying career challenges and matching them with opportunities. The goal of the campaign is to provide early-career scientists and researchers opportunities within the ISC network that could advance their scientific careers, offer opportunities for collaboration with other ISC Members, and promote diversity and inclusion when it comes to scientific representation across the world.
Young academies and associations membership campaign
In 2022, the ISC launched a new global campaign offering Affiliate Membership to eligible young scientific groups that would build the voice of early-career scientists and researchers in the Council’s structures. The membership campaign included exploratory one-on-one meetings with international young academies and associations. These critical conversations provided the backdrop for global scientific collaboration and exchange, which resulted in 15 membership applications from young scientific groups from all regions of the world.
