At the virtual 2020 annual general meeting, YAE members elected Dr Gemma Modinos as the new Chair of the Board
On becoming Chair of the YAE Board she said:
“It was a great honour for me to be elected Chair of the Young Academy of Europe, an organisation that I am passionate about. I am grateful to the previous Chairs for the opportunity to learn from them during my first two years on the Board. As young scholars prepare for the complex post-COVID world, my vision is to lead the YAE and to use its trans-disciplinary strengths and excellence to solve challenges we face in Europe. As a grassroots initiative, I truly believe in the YAE’s power to bring about change, as a platform for young scholars to build support, to explore and debate new ideas, and to have a clear voice in European science policy. I am looking forward to working alongside my colleagues in the YAE community to further enhance the YAE’s role and influence. I am also very excited about strengthening our partnership with Academia Europaea and the wonderful opportunities that this will bring for both organisations, as well as for the wider European research community.”
Plan S requires publications funded by public grants to be published in Open Access journals or platforms from 2021. An international symposium, organised by the AE Cardiff Hub with KU Leuven Libraries, assesses the impact of Plan S on researchers, research-intensive institutions, societies and publishers.
This month we talk to Chair of the Young Academy of Europe (YAE) Dr Mangala Srinivas. Dr Srinivas, of Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, discusses the impact of being awarded an ERC Starting Grant, her role as the Chair of the Young Academy of Europe and why the YAE became involved in the debate on Plan S.
The AE Cardiff Hub and the Young Academy of Europe (YAE) have entered a collaboration agreement with the aim of working together more closely and enhancing operational effectiveness.
The Cardiff Hub’s 30th anniversary reception, held on 14th January, featured a lively discussion on Plan S, an initiative for open-access science publishing. Plan S was launched in September 2018 by an international consortium of research funders, cOAlition S, supported by the ERC and launched by Science Europe.
Prof Ole Petersen, the Hub’s Academic Director, and Dr Mangala Srinivas, Chair Young Academy of Europe (YAE), introduced the topic, followed by audience discussion.
Continuing the Academia Europaea’s 30th anniversary celebrations into 2019, the Cardiff Hub held its own celebration on Monday 14th January.
