  • Extend your network and profit from peer-to-peer support
  • Develop and voice your views on science policy in all its aspects and become involved in the University’s science policy
  • Prepare for membership in national and international science organisations and boards
  • Set up interdisciplinary research projects with the Young Academy’s PhD positions

The University supports the Young Academy by providing a budget for these and other projects and activities, a budget per member, and three PhD positions for interdisciplinary research. Young Academy members are free to set up and pursue their own projects and activities while furthering the goals of the YAG.

The term of membership is five years (not renewable).

Please see more on How to apply to the Young Academy Groningen.

While the Young Academy of Groningen caters to the University’s talented young researchers, the Dutch Young Academy (De Jonge Academie, DJA) fulfils this role for all excellent young researchers working at Dutch universities. The University of Groningen members of the Dutch Young Academy are welcomed to join the Young Academy Groningen by virtue of their DJA membership.
