    Goals / Remit

    The vision of the GYA is science for all; science for the future, and its mission is to give a voice to young scientists and researchers around the world. The GYA, founded in 2010, is an independent science academy of 200 outstanding early- to mid-career researchers from six continents who are selected from across disciplines based on their academic excellence and commitment to engage with society. GYA members serve five-year terms, and the GYA presently counts members and alumni from 97 countries. The GYA administrative Office is publicly funded and hosted at the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina. The wide array of GYA activities are supported by a range of international public and private funders.

    Main EU files targeted

    Since 2019, the GYA – led by its Open Science working group – has been part of COAlitionS and contributes to their work towards developing a PlanS Monitor Task Force.

    In 2020, the GYA became part of a consortium, led by F1000 Research, and also including Eurodoc and LIBER as partners, that was awarded a contract to build and promote the European Commission’s free Open Access publishing platform for scientific articles – Open Research Europe.
