Young scientists are increasingly called upon to participate in multi-stakeholder dialogues on research, innovation, and global issues. Since its inception in 2008, the World Economic Forum’s Young Scientists Community, in collaboration with IAP, selects the best scientific minds who will spur innovation and play a transformational role in integrating scientific knowledge and technological innovation to improve the state of the world. The Global Young Academy (GYA) grew out of discussions amongst top young scientists from around the world convened by IAP for the Annual Meeting of New Champions which took place in 2008 and 2009.

The GYA was officially founded in February, 2010 with support by IAP. IAP and GYA continue to coordinate nominations to the Forums' Young Scientists Community on behalf of senior academies and the National Young Academies (NYAs), as well as closely collaborate on programmes and activities.
