The Global Young Academy (GYA) was founded in 2010 with the vision to be the voice of young scientists around the world. The GYA
empowers early-career researchers to lead international and interdisciplinary initiatives and projects, and to engage in intergenerational
dialogue by developing and mobilising talent from six continents. The academy is hosted by the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina.
A flagship project of the GYA is the Global State of Young Scientists (GloSYS) project, which is currently being carried out in fourteen African
countries. GloSYS Africa is an empirical research project which relies on the collection and analysis of both quantitative and qualitative data
for the purpose of advancing our understanding of the working conditions, funding environment, and challenges affecting young scientists in Africa.
A central aim of the GloSYS studies is to collect internationally-comparable data on early-career researchers in all regions of the world.
The GloSYS Africa project is currently in its final year. Future regional GloSYS projects are currently under discussion.
