Last week was busy but exciting here at the Young Academy of Scotland. We have now officially increased our numbers to 156 members by welcoming our talented and diverse third cohort of members to the academy. You can read more about them by looking at the New Members 2014 section of our website or by looking at the booklet pdf here: https://www.youngacademyofscotland.org.uk/images/New_Members_-_Booklet_2014.pdf
New YAS Members with RSE President Sir John Arburthnott and General Secretary Professor Alan Alexander
It has been great to welcome these new, enthusiastic individuals to the Young Academy. The new members got the opportunity to meet with existing Young Academy members just two days after the induction at our AGM held at the University of Dundee. After a wonderful welcome from the University, and inspiring words from Professor Sue Black, new members were giving the opportunity to introduce themselves and their work to the rest of the group. The AGM also offered opportunity for our working groups to get together and for new members to decide which of these they would like to join. It was productive day, so watch this space for more informaiton on some upcoming projects!
