The AESOP Young Academics Network is a loosely structured branch of AESOP, which encourages the active participation and exchange of academic work from PhD students to Post-docs and those starting out in academic positions. The YA Network provides a platform through which the academic leaders of tomorrow can share ideas in an open and inclusive environment, challenging and supporting one another in the attainment of superior academic output. The young academics network has two core aims:
- Make AESOP a challenging environment for young academics;
- Open up the structure of AESOP to better encourage young academic involvement.
