Palestine Young Academy (PYA) and Palestine Academy for Science and Technology are pleased to announce opening the 2020 call for application to join the academy. PYA was founded in December 2019 as an initiative of active members who work together to address topics of national and international importance. PYA aims to provide a voice for young Palestinian researchers, encourage young researchers to engage in cross-disciplinary research and communicate with different Arab and international institutions interested in science, empower researchers to participate in the decision-making process, and enhance Palestinian resilience through science and technology.

PYA, therefore, is looking for members who can actively contribute to the academy's projects and activities, and also lead a national, inter-disciplinary, and inter-generational dialogue with the goal to make decision-making evidence-based and inclusive. Members are selected for a four-year term based on a proven track record for outstanding contributions to science and their commitment to applying science for the benefit of Palestinian society. We strive for the highest level of excellence and impact in our activities. 

It is worthy to mention, that PYA was established under the Umbrella of Palestine Academy for Science and Technology (PALAST), and with support from PALAST providing the administrative and logistical support that would make PYA plans a success for all Palestinian young scientists at home and abroad.
