Global Challenges and Young Scientists’ Collaboration (GCYS)

Global Challenges and Young Scientists’ Collaboration

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the I Symposium of Global Challenges and Young Scientists’ Collaboration (GCYS).

What is GCYS?

“Global Challenges and Young Scientists’ Collaboration” is a student-driven initiative supported by several European academic and research institutions like the Institute of Tropical Health of the University of Navarra (ISTUN), the Spanish Society of Tropical Medicine and International Health (SEMTSI) and the Spanish Society of Parasitology (SOCEPA).

The world we live in is marked by continuous change and faces new challenges every day.

It is our goal to awaken the interest of young students in the health field to reflect, analyze and question these changes, so they are better equipped to become the next leaders of the scientific community.

GCYS consists of a series of online webinars in which we will meet with leaders of the health, pharmaceutical and scientific fields to touch on relevant subjects like Covid-19, vaccines and climate change, among others.
