German-Israeli Young Academy AcadeMIX 2024
With GIF support, the Israeli and German Young Academies reconnected in 2021 and followed the footsteps of the successful Israel Young Academy AcadeMIX, which was launched in 2019.
The program aims to bring together leading researchers from diverse disciplines, backgrounds, and institutions for a four-day interdisciplinary retreat. The objective is to foster interdisciplinary research by creating a climate and a community of curious, open-minded, and research-savvy scientists.
Each day of the program allows participants to showcase their own research during the first half of the day, while afternoons and evenings are dedicated to TED-style talks and discussions among the participants. This format offers an exciting intellectual experience and exposes participating researchers to a wide array of research topics and methodologies. Beyond promoting interdisciplinary research, the participation of Young Academy members and alumni will add another layer of mutual interest in science policy.
To further deepen the collaboration between the German Young Academy and the Israel Young Academy and to explore possibilities for establishing a strategic partnership, both partners will continue the “AcadeMIX” format in 2024. This format facilitates interdisciplinary exchange among their members and helps break down institutional boundaries. It builds upon the foundation laid in the previous years, particularly in 2023 with the inaugural joint AcadeMIX in Jerusalem.
