The Academy Programme and the Academy Theme provide the foundation for the JQ Young Academy’s academic work. The Academy Programme offers a framework for a close intellectual exchange and interdisciplinary dialogues between the Fellows themselves and with leading personalities from science, industry, society and politics, on the national and international level. To ensure that discussions are directed and focused, the Fellows set a new Academy Theme each winter term, in such a way that it can be reflected by any discipline. The joint thematic development of the Academy Theme in a cross-disciplinary manner, is tackled within the integral elements of the Academy Programme:
Internal round-table discussions on 24.04.2020 and 19.06.2020 include elements such as:
- ‘Comprehending the interdisciplinarity’—a session where Fellows learn about research approaches in different fields.
- ‘Ask me anything’— an interactive session to encourage cross-disciplinary basic questions that will help Fellows understand other research disciplines.
Our first summer school will take place in Helsinki (Finland) in the House of Science and Letters, week 32 in 2020. The summer school offers a versatile scientific programme: talks, expert groups, workshops, discussions on future perspectives in science, site seeing, etc.
The outcomes of the academy year will be presented via a format of the Fellows’ choice, e.g. symposium, annual book, etc.
Annual impulse-giving event and award ceremony welcoming new Fellows will take place in the autumn 2020.
A workshop, where Fellows formulate and decide on the next Academy Theme.
Scientific tandems in which the Fellows join together to organise the scientific events.
The JQYA relies on creative and motivated personalities, as the Fellows experience complete freedom in shaping the academy programme and initiating lively and fruitful discussions.
