The Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean (ROLAC) of the International Council for Science (ICSU) is pleased to circulate the call to apply and join the 2018 Young Scientists community
Each year, the World Economic Forum honours 50 extraordinary scientists under the age of 40 for their contributions to advancing the frontiers of science, engineering and technology. They are selected from all regions of the world and from a wide range of disciplines to join the Young Scientists https://www.weforum.org/commu
As part of this experience, Young Scientists are also invited to participate alongside business and political leaders in the Annual Meeting of the New Champions https://www.weforum.org/event
During the Meeting, Young Scientists are exposed to the World Economic Forum activities, benefit from a tailored programme, and are given the opportunity to meet with high-level policy leaders, entrepreneurs and science editors in an informal and intimate setting. The Annual Meeting of the New Champions is also an opportunity for them to raise public awareness by engaging with peers, non-scientists, as well as decision-makers.
Young Scientists are provided with accommodation and local transportation, and benefit not only from a private programme specifically designed for them but also from the full public programme.
If you’d like to be nominated by our organization, please send us your resume and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our institution will then nominate 6 candidates from Latin America – 3 women and 3 men – whose expertise, leadership and communication skills represent excellence.
