Global State of Young Scientists (GloSYS) in ASEAN

The Global Young Academy (GYA) will present a new regional study in its GloSYS series at the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina:

Global State of Young Scientists (GloSYS) in ASEAN –
Creativity and Innovation of Young Scientists in ASEAN

Many economies in Asia, and, in particular ASEAN countries, are transitioning from being manufacturingbased to knowledge-based. Young ASEAN scientists will drive this transition. These scientists are in the process of establishing their careers as highly innovative researchers and teachers of the next generation of students. Their motivation to follow careers in science entails their passion for their fields, a chance for discovery through research, and the possibility of inspiring the next generation. The GYA, in cooperation with the National Science, Technology and Innovation Policy Office (STI) and the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) in Thailand, undertook a preliminary assessment of the challenges and opportunities identified by young scientists and scholars from all disciplines in four selected countries in ASEAN: Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and Thailand. We are grateful to the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) for supporting and co-funding the project.
