We invite young scientific groups to join us for the International Science Council – Young Academies and Associations Roundtable hosted during the Global Knowledge Dialogue event in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The Roundtable will feature inspirational speakers, impact case-studies and a fireside chat about the ISC Membership of Young Academies and Associations.
The hybrid event will provide a space for exchange, learning and collaboration among young members of the ISC, and it will also enable Early Career Researchers (ECR) to coordinate among themselves to have a stronger voice and representation in the ISC strategy, activities and in the international scientific community.

– Alison Meston, ISC Communications Director
– Gabriela Ivan, ISC Membership Development Officer
|15:05 – 15:30*||Ignite Talks – Elevating the Voice of ECR in International Science |
The discussion will feature inspiring stories from three fellow scientists who will share their perspectives on how to elevate the voice of Early Career Researchers (ECR) in scientific research, scientific writing and international programs and prizes, and how to foster the engagement between Young Academies and Associations and Senior Science Academies.
– Dr Orakanoke Phanraksa, Senior Advisor for International Affairs, Thailand Science Research and Innovation
– Prof Baojing Gu, Zhejiang University, China, Frontiers Planet Prize International Champion
– Dr Mari Kondo, Early- and Mid-Career Researcher (EMCR) Program Manager, Australian Academy of Science
|15:30 – 16:00*||Impact Case-Studies – Showcasing ECR Participation in Global Science |
The Impact Case-Studies will feature Young Academies and Associations organizational examples of programs and initiatives empowering ECR representation and participation in global science.
3 Impact Case Studies from ISC Young Academies and Associations Members (TBD)
|16:00 – 17:30*||Fireside Chat – ISC Membership of Young Academies and Associations |
This interactive discussion will provide the platform for an open discussion between the Young Academies and Associations among the ISC Membership. The Fireside Chat will enable an exchange of information around the needs that ECR have and the challenges they face. The discussion will explore opportunities of collaboration and will foster engagement and outreach within the ISC Membership and with the broader international scientific community.

Global Knowledge Dialogue event in Kuala Lumpur
The Young Academies and Associations Roundtable is a side-event of the Global Knowledge Dialogue (GKD) Asia-Pacific which will be held on 6 October 2023 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre during the 2023 International Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition & Conference (IGEM). The ISC Regional Focal Point for Asia and the Pacific through the Australian Academy of Science, and the Academy of Sciences Malaysia, will host this event. Presidents, executive officers, ISC focal points and key decision makers of ISC Members in the region, along with ISC Fellows and representatives of ISC affiliated bodies will gather during this GKD to work towards providing a powerful and credible voice for science from Asia and the Pacific on the global stage. More than 10 Young Academies and Associations representatives from the Asia and the Pacific region will join this event in person.
ISC Young Academies and Associations Membership
In 2022 the ISC invited Young Academies and Associations to apply for affiliate membership in the spirit of promoting the participation of Early Career Researchers in its activities and governance, thereby enlarging opportunities for ECR to be represented in international science. Seventeen new Members consequently joined the ISC in 2023, with new Members continuing to join on an ongoing basis. For more information on the ISC Membership of Young Academies and Associations please write to Gabriela Ivan, ISC Membership Development Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
