The Young Academy of Europe (YAE) is a pan-European initiative of outstanding young scientists for networking, advocacy, scientific exchange, and science policy.
The YAE is organised as a bottom-up initiative of a dynamic and innovative group of recognised European young scientists and scholars with outspoken views about science and science policy. Since 2019, we are a registered charity organization.
We provide input and advice from a younger generation’s perspective – a vital input to shape EU-wide policy for the benefit of future European scholars and scientists.
“Impact of the pandemic on early-career researchers” – results of the YAE survey published in Nature
In summer 2020, a survey was initiated within the framework of Young Academy of Europe (YAE) and the CALIPER project about the situation of early-career researchers under the COVID-19 pandemic. The results of the COVID-19 survey have been recently published in Nature.
Due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding travel restrictions, the 2021 YAE AGM will be a virtual meeting. You can register here.
