The YAE is an international, non-governmental association of individual scientists and scholars who are experts and leaders in their respective fields, as recognised by their peers. All YAE Members are bound by the Code of Conduct established by the YAE Board on 16th March 2016.

The YAE is administered by a Board. It is divided into three Domains, namely:

  • Physical Sciences and Engineering (PE)
  • Life Sciences (LS)
  • Social Sciences and Humanities (SH)

The members of the Board of the YAE are selected from among its members representing the three Domains.

The Board’s main function is to support members’ work by guiding and coordinating their ideas and activities. The Board serves as the first point of contact for external parties and for the AE. The Board consists of a Chair, a Vice Chair, an Outgoing Chair, a Secretary, a Treasurer, the Chair and two Vice Chairs of the Selection Committee, as well as Chairs and Vice Chairs for Communications and Membership. At the Annual General Meeting, the YAE members elect the Board members for a term of three years, and directly elect the Chair and Vice chair of the Academy. The other resorts are assigned within the board. The YAE Chair and Vice chair have a standing invitation to the AE Board and vice versa.

The Selection Committee consists of three YAE Board members, representing each of the three Domains. The Chair of the Selection Committee leads the selection process. He or she forwards a list of new nominations to the YAE Board, who take the final decision on the admission of new members.
