Young Academy Finland

Young Academy Finland is a multidisciplinary organization for young researchers that aims to promote research and strengthen the status of science and scholarship in society. Our aim is to create dialogue between different disciplines and between researchers and society in general. We promote open science practices and aim to make the perspective of young researchers more prominent in public discourse on science and scholarship. We also aim to encourage students to pursue a career in research by building connections between researchers and schools.

Young Academy Finland was established by the Finnish Academy of Sciences and Letters with the help of an endowment from the Emil Aaltonen Foundation in 2017. Young Academy Finland continues the traditions of its predecessor, the Young Academy Club run by the Finnish Academy of Sciences and Letters, but is an independent organization. We collaborate extensively with academic organizations both in Finland and internationally. We meet regularly to discuss our research and science and scholarship in general in the spirit of multidisciplinarity. Our members are nominated by the Finnish Academy of Sciences and Letters for four-year terms.
