The Nigerian Young Academy was established in August 2010 by the pioneering effort of the Nigeria Academy of Science (NAS), supported by Nigerian Academy of Education (NAE) and the Nigerian Academy of Engineering.
The Nigerian Young Academy is a unified platform for interaction among brilliant young researchers in Nigeria (not above the age of 40 years at the point of entry) who are from various research disciplines and regions of the country.
The academy seeks to nurture outstanding and aspiring youthful academics and professionals towards improving the state of the nation. The academy recognizes excellence among young researchers nationally and promotes the application of collective research findings for the improvement of the quality of the society. It also plays a crucial role in building inspirational figures for a new generation of researchers.
