The frustration with grant application and management appears to be universal amongst scientists and in particular young scientists around the world.
As the voice of young scientists around the world, the GYA seeks to encourage students to find out about the work of scientists. The science game is a very useful tool and a practical example for this purpose.
In the developed world, academics use for their research specialized software licensed by their institutions and research groups. On the contrary, in the developing world the institutions are usually unable to afford to purchase institutional licenses at the full price. GYA members work on facilitating the access to research software via a broad range of activities.
Bridging the International Scientific Gap: The Global Young Academy’s Young Scientist Ambassador Program
The Young Scientist Ambassador Program (YSAP) originated as a Legacy Program for the third cohort of InterAcademy Panel Young Scientists (YS) who—by nomination of their respective national academies—attended the 2010 Annual Meeting of the New Champions (AMNC) in Tianjin, China.
Large numbers of excellent young scientists in developing countries migrate to developed countries.
The project aims to compile a report on the state of young scientists around the world, drawing on new and established evidence and insights from relevant researchers, experts, and institutions working in this field.
Given the background of many GYA members, it is natural that the organization is deeply interested in matters of Science Education.
The number of Women in Science has increased steadily during the last decade. Nevertheless women are still underrepresented, especially in the area of science and technology. The aim of this working group is to identify the barriers women face in participating in science and to promote specific activities to overcome these obstacles.
The aim of this working group is to identify which indicators are used to measure excellence in science and what kind of environment would be most suitable to unleash curiosity and creativity in science, as well as to foster the development of human potential.
National Academy of Young Scientists (NAYS) started a project of Science for Youth (S4Y) to motivate students at school and college level. This project is an effort to encourage our youth towards conceptual learning. Our youth is the future and this is an initiative to build a better future. As majority of the population of developing world comprises of youth so this is an effort to get more and more devoted scientists in future.
