Young Academy Member chosen as WEF 2013 Young Scientist

Young Academy of Scotland member Luke Bisby has been selected as a 2013 Young Scientist by the World Economic Forum. This honour is bestowed by the WEF each year to recognize the most distinguished science leaders under the age of 40, nominated from around the world.

Luke will be representing the YAS at the Annual Meeting of the New Champions 2013 in Dalian, People’s Republic of China. This is the foremost global business gathering in Asia, creating a unique opportunity for exchange between leaders from top-ranked multinationals and chief executive officers of dynamic and fast-growing companies, including key decision-makers from government, media, academia and civil society.

It will bring together more than 1,500 participants from 90 countries to share strategies and solutions and discuss global issues and risks. The New Champion communities – including Global Growth Companies, Young Global Leaders, Young Scientists, Technology Pioneers, Social Entrepreneurs and the World Economic Forum’s youngest community, the Global Shapers – will engage with Forum Members and Partners during the seventh Annual Meeting of the New Champions.
