Young Academy Groningen 2020 New Member Inauguration - Livestream event
|When:||We 16-09-2020 19:00 - 20:30|
On the evening of September 16th, seven new talented and enthusiastic young researchers will be installed into the Young Academy Groningen. As YAG members they are ambassadors for science and scholarship at the UG representing the interests of the Early Career Researcher community.
Susanne Täuber, YAG board member and chair of the selection committee says "The new members fit excellently with the vision and mission of the YAG due to their dedication to science, their strong commitment to public engagement, interdisciplinary research, and their passion for science policy and the fate of early career researchers. At the same time, we are excited about the new impulses that the new members will give to the YAG's activities: contributing to further strengthening the ties between the university and society, increasing engagement with the public, and with new ideas to advance the YAG's mission to make the university more equal, diverse, and inclusive."
We cordially invite you to celebrate with us on this occasion by following the inauguration by livestream. The inauguration will start on the evening of Wednesday September 16th at 19.00 and end at 20.30.
