The School sends warmest congratulations to Dr Manuel Fernández-Götz (Reader in Archaeology) and Dr Mirko Canevaro (Reader in Greek History) who have been elected an Executive Board Member of the Young Academy of Europe and a Fellow of the Young Academy of Europe, respectively.
Dr Canevaro, who is already a member of the Young Academy of Scotland and Chair of its Humanities section, said, 'I am delighted to have been admitted as a member of the Young Academy of Europe, and I look forward to contributing to the development of transnational research networks and science policy'.
Dr Manuel Fernández-Götz said, ‘I am very pleased to have been elected to the Board. The YAE is a dynamic association of top researchers, and I look forward to work on strengthening the presence of the humanities and to contribute to its future.’
The YAE was founded in 2012, with a mission to provide input to scientific exchange and science policy across all member states of the European Union or an Associated Country. YAE members are experts and leaders in their respective fields, who seek to provide a ‘younger’ perspective about the future of science and academia in Europe.
