The ‘Global State of Young Scientists’ is an ongoing research project which investigates the context in which early-career researchers in different world regions work, and the challenges and motivations that shape their career trajectories. Among particular themes of interest are young scientists’ motivations to enter research, support mechanisms, access to mentoring, scientific productivity and challenges faced as well as funding, mobility, and gender inequities within the higher education and research environment. Using the knowledge gained through several research phases, the GYA has developed evidence-based policy recommendations that highlight the ways in which young scientists can be better supported in their research efforts and career development. The GYA aims to actively engage with policy makers and other social actors to disseminate GloSYS findings and recommendations.
