The GYA as an academy, as well as our members and alumni, work with a number of partner organisations to contribute the voice of early- to mid-career researchers and scientists to solving global challenges. Please see below for an ever-growing list of our esteemed partners and funders.

The GYA is still building this page, and will add to it as our partnerships continue to grow. Please contact us at with any questions you may have.

The Global Young Academy gratefully acknowledges the core funding from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

The GYA and The All European Academies (ALLEA) launched a strategic partnership in early 2019, formalised in a Memorandum of Understanding between the two organizations. ALLEA, as the European Federation of Academies of Sciences and Humanities, represents more than 50 academies from over 40 countries in Europe. Together, GYA and ALLEA aim to enhance knowledge exchange and establish a set of joint activities on topics of mutual interest at the interface between science, society and policy.

In 2019, the GYA became a full member of the InterAcademy Partnership (IAP), a global network of 138 academies of science, engineering and medicine. The IAP is a vital part of the global science landscape, and strives to ensure that science serves society inclusively and equitably. IAP support for the GYA and National Young Academies goes back well beyond the founding of the GYA in 2010, to IAP’s support for young scientists at the “Summer Davos” meetingsĀ  of the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting of New Champions in 2008 and 2009.

Since April 2020, GYA has been an Affiliate Member of the International Science Council (ISC). The ISC brings together the natural and social sciences through over 170 international scientific unions and associations, as well as national and regional scientific organizations, including academies and research councils. As global science organisations, both the GYA and the ISC seek to advance science as a global public good.
