Beijer Young Scholars Workshop 29 May - 2 June 2017

The Beijer Young Scholars Programme was initially founded in 2012 with the aim of creating international networks of young researchers and stimulating the emergence of new research pathways and new ways of cooperating across disciplines on issues concerning the global challenges facing humanity.

They come together in workshops arranged by the Beijer Institute at the Royal Swedish Academy in Stockholm and in the Stockholm Archipelago to tackle a common research issue, with senior scientists providing advice on processes and methods.

The current BYS group consists of 19 post-docs, young faculty members (within five years of completing their PhD) and advanced PhD students from Europe, North and South America and Asia, with a background in economics, ecology, political science or related disciplines. 

Three workshops were held with thefirst generation Beijer Young Scholars (2012-2015), see list of participants here.
