Want to join the WYA?

The Wageningen Young Academy (WYA), which started early 2012, brings together enthusiastic, ambitious, and outstanding young scientists of Wageningen University across all its scientific disciplines. Our aim is to stimulate interactions and debate between researchers from different disciplines and to strengthen the position of young researchers within the university. To realize this, we plan to organize lectures, masterclasses, and outreach activities, and to participate in discussions on Wageningen University policy.

At this moment WYA has 29 members, between 30 and 45 years old. Potential new members should have a primary affiliation at Wageningen University, a strong motivation to contribute to the academic quality of Wageningen University, and a clear independence in their scientific career. Most of all, candidates should be willing to look outside the borders of their own discipline and interact with researchers from other fields.

We are currently not actively looking for new members, but if you are interested in becoming a WYA member, mail us and we will notify you when we start looking for new members:
