The Young Academy


The ›Junge Akademie | Mainz‹ is the format of the Academy of Sciences and Literature | Mainz aimed at reward and support outstanding PostDocs from all scientific fields as well as young literary and music professionals. Excellent young researchers are chosen in recognition of their outstanding scientific and artistic achievements for a period of four years and in support in their further careers. The Membership provides them the opportunity to expand their scientific network under the sign of interdisciplinarity. Particular attention is paid to the integrative character of the Junge Akademie in the sense of a dialogue that connects disciplines and generations: The active participation in the meetings and events of the academy and the exchange with the members of the established scholarly society are key elements of the format. The members of the Junge Akademie have the opportunity to organize their own events and to develop new initiatives, especially within the framework of working groups that deal with current research questions from an interdisciplinary perspective.

The Young Academy | Mainz is financed by the Ministry of Science and Health of the State of Rhineland-Palatinate under the Patronage of Minister Clemens Hoch.

Further cooperations exist with the Werner Reimers Foundation, which welcomes the Junge Akademie to its premises at the annual Reimerstage, with the German-Italian Center for European Excellence Villa Vigoni and with the German Historical Institutes in Rome, Paris and London.
