The Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE), Scotland’s National Academy, is delighted to announce that it has today chosen the first members of the new “RSE Young Academy of Scotland”. This exciting development is the first of its kind in the UK. It will be part of a growing movement of Young Academies across the world.
The RSE has established this Young Academy as a unique opportunity to bring together some of the most able and innovative young academics, entrepreneurs, artists and professionals in Scotland. Every year a new round of applications will be encouraged bringing in a new cohort of members. The aim of the initiative is to stimulate creative ideas and collaborative working that will help address some of the key challenges facing Scotland and contribute to solving some of the global challenges of the 21st Century.
We are sure that Jano will drive this agenda on many fronts. Our hearty (and slightly belated) congratulations.
