Global Young Academy Executive Committee (EC) members from around the world convened in Halle (Saale), Germany, at the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina and at the GYA Office from 2-3 October 2017. Due to the global nature of the GYA, the EC meets virtually at least once a month, but only comes together in person once or twice a year. Throughout the constructive two-day meeting, EC members discussed progress with respect to GYA strategic aims, virtually met with the GYA Advisory Board, and liaised with regional and national politicians, science administrators, and academy representatives.
