  • Academia and Society

    It is an important goal of the Junge Akademie to be involved at the intersection of academia and society and to advance dialogue with unusual means. more

    We apply ourselves to topics of university and research policy: On behalf of the academy, members keep publishing theses and statements pertaining to science policy which are often broadly discussed. more

  • Structural Freedom

    The Junge Akademie is free to choose its preferred forms of work and organisation – members make decisions together in their Plenums.

  • International Network

    In recent years, many academies for young academics have been founded, right up to the Global Young Academy. The Junge Akademie maintains the exchange of information and is involved in cooperations. more
