The Global State of Young Scientists (GloSYS) Africa project. GloSYS was initiated by the Global Young Academy (GYA) and investigates the challenges and motivations shaping the career trajectories of young African scientists across disciplines and employment sectors. The GloSYS team will use the data obtained from this research to develop policy recommendations that highlight the ways in which young scientists can be better supported in their research efforts and career development.
The GloSYS Africa Survey is aimed at early career researchers within and from Africa with either a Master’s or PhD degree earned within the last ten years. The GloSYS team is looking for African researchers within and outside Academia, in any discipline, to share their experiences.

GloSYS is on Facebook and Twitter. A brief film about the GloSYS project can be watched on
