The Young Academy of Groningen is a club for the University’s most talented, enthusiastic and ambitious young researchers of all fields and disciplines. Operating independently within the University, the Young Academy aims to actively promote interdisciplinary research, engage the University's young researchers of all faculties in the Young Faculty Forum, develop viewpoints on science policy and talent development and advise the University on these and related topics and organise inspiring activities for the public to boost the relationship between science and society.
The Young Academy is currently being established. The first generation Young Academy members have the unique opportunity to set the agenda for the club’s organisation and activities.
