International participation

One of YESS main aims is to stimulate career development and to increase the opportunities for early career scientists on national, regional and international levels. One way to actively engage early career researchers and to ensure a common voice is coming across in the community to help shape the future of science is through engagement and memberships in panels, boards, committees etc.
