The Utrecht Young Academy (UYA) is a select group of enthusiastic and ambitious young academics at Utrecht University. Operating as an independent organisation within the university, the UYA aims to exchange critical perspectives on academia, policy, and society in Utrecht and beyond.
UYA is a collaboration platform for generating ideas among young academics and influencing decision makers on science and education policy. Throughout the year, UYA members organise a wide variety of inspiring activities for scholars, students and the public in order to boost the relationship between academia and society.
