Global Young Academy
Here we present some of the videos we produced together with the Global Young Academy.
The Global Young Academy is an international society of young scientists, aiming to give a voice to young scientists across the globe. Membership strength is capped at 200, and the membership tenure is 5 years.

"The Global Young Academy gives a voice to young scientists around the world. To realise our vision, we develop, connect, and mobilise young talent from six continents. Moreover, we empower young researchers to lead international, interdisciplinary, and inter-generational dialogue with the goal to make global decision making evidence-based and inclusive."

Enjoy this mini-series produced together with the Women in Science working group:

Dr. Anindita Bhadra is a behavioural biologist, working with free-ranging (stray) dogs in India. While pet dogs are studied extensively and compared with wolves in order to understand the evolution of the dog-human relationship, free-ranging dogs in India provide the perfect model system for studying them in nature, and building an understanding of the intrinsic nature of dogs. As they have hardly been studied so far, Dr. Bhadra chose the dogs as a model system, shifting completely from her zone of training and comfort, social insects. This gave her the freedom to set up a research group from scratch, doing things that she had never done before, and exploring new vistas of research.

Dr. Bhadra was involved in the founding of INYAS, and was elected as the first Chairperson by the founding members in June 2015.

In June 2020 she was elected co-chair of the Global Young Academy. In this video, she shares her personal story.
