Our structure

The UK Young Academy is a not for profit organisation, established under the auspices of the Royal Society, a UK registered charity, in partnership with the six other senior national academies, operating across the UK and Ireland.

The initial structure sees the UK Young Academy’s Governance Committee report to the Royal Society Council on its progress.

In addition, an Appointments Committee will select the first cohort of 60 members, who will then elect their first executive group to take on responsibility for running the UK Young Academy.

Once this is in place, an advisory group comprising Fellows of the partner academies will be established to offer support and advice to the UK Young Academy.

The UK Young Academy is funded by a grant to the Royal Society from the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

Governance Committee

For its establishment, the UK Young Academy’s Governance Committee is responsible for overseeing the plan to set up the UK Young Academy, budget allocations and its operational requirements. Members include representatives from the Royal Society’s Council and staff, and the partner academies

Appointments Committee

The Appointments Committee of the UK Young Academy is comprised of individuals representing the seven partner academies across different areas of knowledge, expertise and geography. A mix of Fellows and Members from the partner academies and early career and professional sector representatives, they are responsible for establishing a fair process to appoint the first group of UK Young Academy members. These first members will then determine the future process for selecting members.
