AGM 2019: International Conference and Anniversary Annual General Meeting of the Global Young Academy




German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina


Jägerberg 1


Halle (Saale)



The GYA Anniversary International Conference of Young Scientists and Annual General Meeting celebrates the 10th anniversary of the GYA.

The theme of the conference is: Re-enlightenment? Truth, reason and science in a global world

As a global organisation aiming to empower early-career researchers to lead international, interdisciplinary, and inter-generational evidence-informed dialogue, the GYA welcomes a debate about re-enlightenment: framed around a reflection on the role and limits of science in today’s globalized society and on how science can help in solving its problems.

The Re-enlightenment theme will also be a foil to discuss the core principles that animate the GYA itself. In interactive sessions, members, alumni and guests will be invited to question, debate and develop the values that characterize the GYA spirit. At the 2019 annual meeting, not only the growth and accomplishments of GYA´s global network will be highlighted, but also a vision for its future will be developed.
