20 augustus 2010 More than 100 young scientists from 40 countries have joined forces in the Global Young Academy (GYA). This initiative is modeled on existing national young academies such as De Jonge Akademie in the Netherlands and supported by the InterAcademy Panel for International Issues (IAP). Global Young Academy will help establish new national young academies and provide a forum for young scientists in countries without such an organization. GYA members ideally are around the age of 35 and are nominated by senior scientists in their own nations as likely future leaders. Membership will be for 4 years.

We’ve written about social networking platforms that are tailored for the science and research community. ResearchGATE aimed to be the LinkedIn for Scientists. Today, Sciencefeed is launching as a realtime micro blogging platform designed specifically for scientists. Sciencefeed allows users to post short microblogs (not restricted to 140 characters) on scientific headlines, new findings, controversy, conferences and ideas related to science. You can follow users; respond to other member’s entries, and comment on various topics in realtime. You can search for topics and keywords fairly easily and publish updates to Twitter and Facebook.
The latest map in our series tackles one of the true world capitals of science: San Francisco and the surrounding area. With centres such as Stanford, NASA Ames, Berkeley and UCSF few areas on the planet have such a rich concentration of top research facilities.
