Congratulations and welcome are in order for two new national young academies that have recently been created, both of them in Africa.

The Cameroon Academy of Young Scientists (CAYS) held its inaugural meeting in October 2018, while in early November 2018, the Academy of Young Scientists of Benin (AJSB) held its first meeting (see photo).
