Young Scientists Community

About 

The Young Scientists community was created in 2009 to convene rising-star scientists and engage them in the work of the World Economic Forum. The World Economic Forum, committed to improving the state of the world, is the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation. The Forum engages the foremost political, business and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.

 

Mission 

The Forum’s Young Scientists are a community of extraordinary scientists from across academic disciplines and geographies, under the age of 40, who commit to integrating scientific knowledge into society for the public good. In the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the Young Scientists community help decision-makers understand the impact of science on global issues and themselves strive to develop into global leaders.

 

A Two-Year Journey

By joining the community, the incoming class of Young Scientists are invited to the Annual Meeting of the New Champions (AMNC) in China where they are joined by the previous year’s class of Young Scientists. They participate alongside business, political, media, academia and civil society leaders.

  • Aged 39 or younger at the time of nomination
