This year, the World Science Forum (WSF) offers the opportunity for any scientific organisation to apply for the thematic sessions to be included into the main programme. So, as a young scientist, you should seize this opportunity now and showcase your organisation’s work at the WSF. The deadline for submission of session proposals is 10 April 2019, and results of the open call will be announced by 31 May.

The GYA is firmly committed to this cause, as exemplified by our Women in Science working group, which aims to have the voice of women scientists widely heard to reach policy and decision makers with the target of a better future for female scientists. Moreover, the group aims to raise broad awareness to the not-fully-exploited potential of female intellectualism.
In relation to #WomeninScienceDay, The 3rd International Women in Science without Borders Conference will take place 12-14 March 2019 in Egypt.
The conference will be preceded by a training programme on ‘Science diplomacy and science advice’ on 10-11 March 2019. See here for further details and on how to apply to participate.
