The launch was supported by the National Academy of Science Sri Lanka (NASSL) and the inauguration took place prominently during the General Assembly of the Association of Academies and Societies of Science in Asia (AASSA), with many senior academies present.

The goal of SLAYS is to give young scientist of Sri Lanka a voice and amongst others to link with other national young academies, as well as international academies – such as the Global Young Academy.

Congratulations to the 10 founding members of SLAYS and we are looking forward to good cooperation!
