The Young Academy of Europe (YAE) is a pan-European initiative of outstanding young scientists for networking, scientific exchange and science policy.

The YAE is organized as a bottom-up initiative of a dynamic and innovative group of recognized European young scientists and scholars with outspoken views about science and science policy.

We provide input and advice from a younger generation’s perspective – a vital requirement to shape EU-wide Science Policy for the prospering of science in Europe for future generations.
