Young scientists say ‘big science’ needs developing countries

A global and open research culture depends on developing countries being integrated directly into ‘big science’ projects, according to an international society of early-career scientists.

The Global Young Academy, set up in Germany in 2010, brings together early-career scientists to discuss global research issues and collaborate on international projects. 

In a position statement released on 7 November, the organisation identifies exclusivity as one of the biggest barriers to global research. “There remain major imbalances in the distribution of education, infrastructure and support for science across countries around the world. This is most starkly seen in the divide between the developed and the developing world, where the bulk of scientific training, output and funding flows from the former to the latter.”
