Resources and Governance

 The Young Academy of Scotland has the following resources:

    • The Young Academy operates under the RSE Scotland SCIO (SC043194), a charity connected to the Royal Society of Edinburgh

    • Members pay a subscription of £80 per annum.

    • Sponsorship is sought for particular activities, e.g. by the working groups.

    • The Principals of many of the Scottish universities have agreed to provide expenses for those of their staff appointed to the Young Academy.

    • The Young Academy is supported by dedicated administrative staff provided by the RSE.

The Young Academy co-operates with the RSE and the SCIO through a Memorandum of Understanding which underpins the principles of the relationship between all three parties.

These governing principles enable the Young Academy to develop a distinctive, coherent, and influential “voice” for public benefit by addressing many of the challenging issues facing society.
