Sandro Carnicelli: Royal Society of Edinburgh Young Academy of Scotland (YAS)
news / September 10, 2018
Our treasurer, Sandro Carnicelli has been successfully selected to be member of the Royal Society of Edinburgh Young Academy of Scotland (YAS)
Made up of 126 young professionals, the RSE Young Academy of Scotland (YAS) fosters interdisciplinary activities among emerging leaders from science and humanities, the professions, the arts, business and civil society. Established by the Royal Society of Edinburgh in 2011, YAS provides a platform for innovative young entrepreneurs, professionals and academics to develop a coherent and influential voice, and to address the most challenging issues facing society in Scotland and beyond. Applications were subject to scoring by RSE Fellows and YAS members followed by a selection process involving two selection committees, both composed of RSE Fellows and YAS members. The competition for membership was intense, particularly so because the number of places available was limited and the cohort had to represent a balance across all disciplines.
