The fifth International Conference for Young Scientists and the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Global Young Academy (GYA) will be hosted in Chateau Montebello, Quebec, Canada, from 25-29 May, 2015.
This years conference theme is ‘Innovation for Sustainable Globalization’ and provides a rallying point for outstanding young scientists from around the world to consider new mechanisms and initiatives to support innovation for sustainable development in an increasingly global world. Young researchers are the key innovators and creators, providing the intellectual capital needed to grow a strong national research and innovation system. When viewed against the spectrum of emerging challenges faced by nations world wide – rapid economic globalization, ageing populations, increased demand for highly skilled labour, and the expansion of systems of higher education – the necessity of nurturing and promoting young researchers seems more urgent than ever.
In this years AGM, the public days will be on the afternoon of 26 May 2015 and 27 May 2015. The rest of the meeting is preserved for GYA-members.
