Global State of Young Scientists (GloSYS) Africa survey

Global State of Young Scientists (GloSYS) Africa survey

 

The Global Young Academy (GYA), an interdisciplinary academy of young scientists from all over the world, is currently conducting a large mixed-methods study that investigates the state of young scientists in Africa and in the African diaspora. The GloSYS Africa project is particularly interested in young scientists’ motivations to enter research, access to mentoring and funding, infrastructure needs, and mobility, as well as gender equity within the research environment. Using the knowledge we gain through this research, we develop evidence-based policy recommendations that highlight the ways in which young scientists can be better supported in their research efforts and career development.
 
If you are an early-career researcher with a master's or PhD degree (earned within the last ten years) and are currently living in any country in Africa or in the diaspora, you can personally contribute to this project by completing the short survey (available both in English and in French) and by sharing the survey widely via your professional and social networks. GloSYS is on Facebook and Twitter and you can help by sharing the survey there:
