Networking science.

The Swiss Young Academy networks young researchers from a wide range of scientific disciplines and creates an inspiring environment for inter- and transdisciplinary exchange and innovative ideas. Its members are the representatives of Swiss science and are regarded as the young voice of the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences.

Current members

The Swiss Young Academy currently numbers 34 talented scientists and academics with broad interests from 30 different disciplines, who work at 16 different universities and colleges. Their fields of research and work range from archaeology, film, computer science, psychology and molecular biotechnology to civil-society projects. Together, they use the space for creativity and innovation and for five years implement inter- and transdisciplinary projects that are relevant to science and society and particularly relevant to young researchers.
