Dominika Wylezalek admitted to the Young Academy

Dr. Dominika Wylezalek

The Young Academy Akademie was founded in 2000 as the first academy for outstanding young academics. Its members originate from all scientific disciplines and the arts. They explore the potential and limits of interdisciplinary work and aim to start conversations between science, art and society, and to generate momentum in discussions on science policy. The Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BBAW) and the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina are the supporting academies. Since its founding, Die Junge Akademie has developed into a role model and example for similar initiatives in many other countries.

On 22 June, the Junge Akademie accepted ten young scientists as new members at its annual ceremony, amongst them Dr. Dominika Wylezalek from ZAH/ARI.

During her five-year membership, she has the opportunity to initiate interdisciplinary research projects and working groups or to participate in existing projects and groups, for example on the topics of climate change, science communication or engaged science. The 50 members of the Junge Akademie work and research together in numerous joint interdisciplinary initiatives and benefit from a constantly growing network of excellent scientists and artists. In addition to their research work, they have the opportunity to work together on formats at the interface of science, art and society and to contribute their ideas for shaping the science system.
