Our Strategic Themes

Our work is interdisciplinary and all our activities fit within one or more of our strategic themes.

YAS activities are developed and lead by members, working across disciplines and areas of expertise to respond to some of the most interesting and pressing challenges facing Scotland today. We also work with partner organisations to deliver successful projects and events, and to broaden our reach.

Our Strategic Plan

Our strategic plan sets out YAS’s forward-looking objectives and goals for 2020-2025.  It also defines the six core themes around which YAS structures its work, and through which we aim to deliver on our mission.

Our current strategic plan also contains several Grand Challenges, which transverse all our themes, our members’ areas of expertise, and the different sectors they work in. These will be reviewed every two years.
