The Israel Young Academy

The Israel Young Academy
Joining the global trend, in 2012 the Israel Academy established the Israel Young Academy (IYA) with the intention of creating a framework comprising the country’s leading young scholars in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.
The IYA strives to enhance the connection between scholars and policy-makers and between academia and society, advance the status of young scholars in Israel, enhance research capabilities, and address topics of national and international concern. The IYA has a representative at the Global Young Academy and maintains ties with other young academies in the world, working to establish and sustain meaningful collaborations.
