The South African Young Academy of Science (SAYAS) was launched in 2011 and the inauguration of the twenty leading young scientists as Founder Members of SAYAS was done by the former Minister of Science and Technology, Mr Derek Hanekom. SAYAS was borne out of the need for young scientists to contribute towards solutions to national and global challenges facing society. It represents the voice of young scientists in South Africa and provides a platform for young scientists to influence policy decisions. SAYAS is hosted by the Academy of Science of South Africa and has close relations with the DSI. SAYAS has over the 10-year period contributed towards solutions to national and global challenges facing society; provided platforms for young scientists to influence policy decisions; contribute towards the development of scientific capacity in South Africa through mentoring and role-modelling of future scientists; and has created opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations amongst young scientists locally, continentally, and globally.
