The Academy aims to bring together the most able and innovative young academics, entrepreneurs, artists and professionals in Scotland to stimulate creativity and collaborations that could help address key challenges.

Dr Canevaro is a Greek historian interested in institutional, social and economic history. His work is mainly concerned with the sources for Athenian legal and institutional history, with the ideology and procedures of constitutional reform in Athens, and with inequality of wealth and status in the Greek city-states.

Within the RSE Young Academy of Scotland he joins the working groups ‘Scottish Constitutional Reform’ and ‘Arts, Humanities and Society’, with the intention of making his research available to a wider public and exploring its implications for current issues.
