The first 29 members for the Swiss Young Academy have now been selected. The Swiss Young Academy was established in December 2019. They are now organising a virtual meeting of their members, where they will also elect their co-chairs.

The Board of the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences elected the first 29 members of the Young Academy. The new members come from 25 different disciplines and work at 15 different universities and colleges. They are characterized by their personal profile, their motivation and their great interest in inter- and transdisciplinary cooperation. For five years, they will represent young scientists in Switzerland and will help to shape the newly-founded Swiss Young Academy.

Furthermore, GYA alumnus Marc Creus has been elected as the President of the Advisory Council of the Swiss Young Academy.

See the Swiss Young Academy website for more information about the selection process and the new members.
