Our Black History Month series continues and on day 27 we celebrate the Ghana Young Academy.
The Ghana Young Academy(GhYA) was officially launched in 2014 to be the voice of young scientist in Ghana. The academy is to serve as an institution where our young scientist and researchers can be supported to develop global relations with fellow colleagues thereby exchanging knowledge and adapting best practices.
The Academy is affiliated to the Young Academy, a global network of outstanding young scientist with passion and commitment to the profession.
Members from the Ghana branch will join their colleague’s worldwide to hold discussions and address issues of global importance. The focus is on science policy, education and outreach, open science and promoting cutting edge research.
Although it’s early days, we’re hopeful that the investment in the young scientist will groom and yield future leaders in the field. For this reason, we celebrate the Ghana Young Academy as they earn their place in our history books.
