Junior Academy

Junior Academy is an international programme for young people with a passion for technology, sciences and problem-solving.

The application portal is open from 29 April to 30 June 2022.


Once you’re accepted your membership will continue until your 18th birthday. Within Junior Academy you will have access to a unique network of researchers, mentors and students from all around the world.

You’ll have the opportunity to work in teams with students from different countries to solve various global societal challenges. Together you’ll come up with solutions for everything from how to make the fashion and food industries sustainable, how people around the world can gain quick access to vaccines, to how to supply the most vulnerable groups around the globe with clean water.

The programme is inspiring and challenging, but above all fun! Obviously YOU should apply! 

The programme language is English and registration through Junior Academy’s international portal is handled by the New York Academy of Sciences (NYAS).
In September 2022 we will announce who has been accepted. 

“Through Junior Academy we are showing that young people from different countries who work together can come up with excellent solutions to difficult societal problems.”
