We are excited to announce that the 2022 YAE AGM will be an in-person meeting, held at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra Barcelona – Campus del Mar (Spain) in October. This year also marks the 10th anniversary of the YAE, and we are very much looking forward to celebrating this milestone together with you in Barcelona! 

The 2022 YAE annual meeting span across Tuesday 25th October from 14:00 to 17:30, and Wednesday 26th October from 09:30 to 12:00. We have put together an outstanding programme that includes renowned invited guests, research talks by recently admitted members, and opportunities for brainstorming and exchange. Please see the full programme below.

Registration to the full YAE AGM event is €120 – this includes access to all the AGM sessions on the 25th and 26th October, plus the YAE 10thanniversary dinner on Tuesday 25th. Please register using the link below (orange). 

While registration is separate, the joint Academia Europaea / YAE meeting – Building Bridges 2022 – will go ahead immediately after our AGM in next door at the fabulous Parc de Recerca Biomedica de Barcelona. The programme includes excellent sessions including the Balzan lectures, the AE Gold Medal lecture, and two YAE-led sessions: a debate titled “Towards an inclusive and representative academic landscape” on Wednesday 26th, and the 2022 André Mischke YAE Prize lecture by this year’s awardee Dr. Gergely Toldi on Thursday 27st. We wholeheartedly encourage you to not miss these sessions! You can register for Building Bridges 2022 following the link below (blue).
