INRS researchers at the Global Young Academy
Date:2/11/2013

Quebec City, February 11, 2013 Professor and director Federico Rosei and researchers Marco Peccianti and Alberto Vomiero from the Centre nergie Matriaux Tlcommunications of INRS were recently elected as members of the Global Young Academy (GYA). The GYA is an international organization founded in 2010 to promote scientific exchange and cooperation between talented young researchers in developed and developing countries. GYA members are rising stars known for the excellence of their research across all disciplines, namely the natural sciences and engineering, medicine, as well as social sciences, the arts and humanities.

Professor Rosei is a world-class scientist who has made his mark in the field of nanoscience and is widely recognized for his commitment to the advancement of knowledge and training of young researchers. Alberto Vomiero, a Marie Curie Fellow and researcher presently working with Professor Rosei's team, is currently developing environmentally safe nanomaterials for renewable energy and sustainable development. Researcher Marco Peccianti, a postdoctoral fellow in Professor Roberto Morandotti's lab from 2008 to 2011, helped design a new, very stable, high-precision integrated laser. M. Peccianti is researched for the Italian National Research Council.

For the next four years, the three INRS researchers will be active members of this select club, which presently comprises 155 members in their mid-thirties from 54 countries around the world. As GYA members, they undertake to support young researchers, encourage young people to pursue careers in science, and foster a culture of scientific excellence. In addition to promoting multidisciplinary research to solve global problems, they are called on to help develop and implement national science policies targeting young researchers. In an editorial published in Science, GYA founders explained that a central aim of the GYA is to spur the creation of national academies for young scientists that "encourage and empower their members to engage in interdisciplinary research, communicate science to society, and provide advice on national science policies, especially those affecting young scientists."

The new members are invited to the GYA's annual meeting on May 15 to 18, 2013, in Halle, Germany. Congratulations from all the INRS community!
