NRF supports five young scholars for the 2024 GYSS event in Singapore

The NRF funded five scholars under the NRF-GYSS mobility programme to attend and participate at the Global Young Scientists Summit as well as to showcase their research work through poster presentations.

The scholars consisted of three doctoral students and two postdoctoral fellows based at various South African universities. The Global Young Scientists Summit (GYSS 2024) was held from 08 to 12 January 2024 in Singapore with 16 speakers in the programme and around 350 young scientists from 35 countries.

The five NRF-funded scholars were accompanied by two other scholars from South Africa and Singapore.

About the GYSS: The Global Young Scientists Summit in Singapore brings together young researchers and top scientific minds from around the world to discuss science and technology trends, future game changers and how research could address major global challenges. It was started in 2013 with the objective of exciting and engaging young scientists to pursue their scientific dreams through close interactions with distinguished scientists and researchers, and with peers. The Summit provides a platform for conversations on science and research, technology innovation and society, and solutions to global challenges.
