The Young Academy of Europe (YAE) is a pan-European initiative of outstanding young scientists for networking, advocacy, scientific exchange, and science policy.

It is organised as a bottom-up initiative of a dynamic and innovative group of recognised European young scientists and scholars with outspoken views about science and science policy.

The YAE provides input and advice from a younger generation’s perspective – a vital input to shape EU-wide policy for the benefit of future European scholars and scientists.

For more information on the YAE, please see: https://yacadeuro.org/ or https://yacadeuro.org/board-members/
