Cnr researchers at the Global Young Academy

Alberto Vomiero, researcher at Cnr-Institute of Acoustics and Sensors (Idasc) and at the Institut National de la Recherche scientifique (Inrs) is among the new members of the Global Young Academy (Gya). He has been elected with Marco Peccianti, researcher at Cnr-Institute for Complex Systems (Isc).

Gya is an international organization founded in 2010 to promote scientific exchange and cooperation between talented young researchers in developed and developing countries. Gya members are rising scientists known for the excellence of their research across all disciplines, namely the natural sciences and engineering, medicine, as well as social sciences, the arts and humanities. For the next four years, the three Inrs researchers will be active members of this select club, which presently comprises about 220 members in their mid-thirties from 54 countries around the world. They undertake to support young researchers, encourage young people to pursue careers in science, and foster a culture of scientific excellence. In addition to promoting multidisciplinary research to solve global problems, they are called on to help develop and implement national science policies targeting young researchers.

In an editorial published in 'Science', the Academy founders explained that their central aim is to spur the creation of national academies for young scientists that "encourage and empower their members to engage in interdisciplinary research, communicate science to society, and provide advice on national science policies, especially those affecting young scientists".
