Young Academy of Europe Webinar about Institutional and Departmental Young Academies

This webinar will be organized by ISC Member, the Young Academy of Europe and will be held on 28 November 2023, at 15:30-16:30 CET, dedicated to the functioning and best practices of institutional and departmental young academies.

In addition to national and transnational young academies, it is very important to give a voice to early and mid career researchers (EMCRs) at the local, institutional or departmental level.

In the last 23 years, we have seen a positive increase in the number of national young academies (56) and similar bodies (12) which are now present in 68 different countries. There are also 4 regional or global young academies with transnational membership such as the Global Young Academy or the Young Academy of Europe. It is more or less clear now, why it is useful to launch such organisations and what are their roles.

On the other side, surveys conducted among EMCRs often indicate that young scholars feel excluded from strategic decisions of their own institutions or departments. In countries where trade unions have no strong traditions and activities, junior faculties, institutional or university young academies may help EMCRs advocate for themselves. Such organisations also can have more diverse roles, including promoting networking among EMCRs, mentoring or science outreach, or helping improve the university or institute brand and public image.

In this webinar with representatives from institutional young academies, we’ll discuss the best practices of such organisations compared to national and transnational bodies.
