Global Young Academy (GYA)

The Global Young Academy joined the ISC as an Affiliate Member in April 2020.

The Global Young Academy (GYA) gives a voice to young researchers, bringing a unique global, interdisciplinary, and inclusive perspective guided by evidence and reason to produce a sustainable vision for the future.

The GYA is

• Global, with a strong presence on six continents and a global impact on science and society

• Young, channelling the energy and inspiration of a new generation of science leaders

• An Academy of 200 early- to mid-career researchers, carefully selected for research excellence as well as the impact and significance of their work for society

The GYA empowers young researchers to contribute to society and work together for a better future. As a result of this, the GYA has created a community of brilliant young scholars who can lead international, interdisciplinary, and inter-generational dialogue.
