The GYA wishes to thank all young academies who took the time and submitted a proposal to host the 4th Worldwide Meeting of Young Academies (WWMYA) in 2019 in answer to our call. The GYA was very pleased to receive several very well-developed and highly interesting proposals. The GYA Executive Committee and Office have now looked at them in detail and can now let you know that the 2019 WWMYA will be hosted by the Vietnam Young Academy. Congratulations and looking forward to an equally fantastic meeting of the world’s young academies as the 2017 one in South Africa!
