The 2022 GYA Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held online from 13-17 June 2022, in connection with the International Conference of Young Scientists on the topic “Harmonizing Reason with Sensibility: Regenerating science for an inclusive and sustainable future”.
The International Conference was hosted by the Young Academy of Japan, with support from the Science Council of Japan (SCJ), at Kyushu University in Fukuoka, Japan. Online participation was made possible for GYA members, alumni and partner organisations from around the world.
