The School of Physics and Astronomy is very pleased to announce that Dr Stefan Hild has been appointed to the Global Young Academy (http://www.globalyoungacademy.net/),

As the voice of young scientists around the world the 
Global Young Academy provides a rallying point for 
outstanding young scientists from around the world to 
come together to address topics of global importance
and the role of science in creating a better world.
The 200 members, are leading young scientists from 58 
countries and all continents. Members are selected for 
the excellence of their science and their commitment to 
service and are serving five-year terms. 

The Global Young Academy grew out of discussions amongst 
top young scientists from around the world convened by the 
IAP for the Annual Meeting of New Champions of the World 
Economic Forum (“Summer Davos” meetings) in 2008 and 
2009. It was officially founded in February, 2010 with 
support by the IAP: the Global Network of Science Academies. 
The Global Young Academy maintains active links with 
international science organizations including the UN Science 
Advisory Board, the IAP - the Global Network of Science 
Academies, the Global Research Council and ICSU - 
International Council for Science. As part of its global remit,
the GYA works to reduce the science gap between developed 
and developing countries by connecting young scientists from 
different countries. It members believe that scientists need 
to contribute more than their own research findings to society.
