Éva Dékány has been selected to be a member of the Global Young Academy
The Global Young Academy (GYA) is an international association of young researchers who engage in working groups. Their activities are relevant to scientific and societal debate, and cover interdisciplinary topics. Researchers less than 7 years after their Ph.D., under the age of 40 are eligible to join the 200-member organisation representing 24 countries, and the membership lasts for a period of five years.
GYA represents the interests of its members – a community of young teachers and researchers – and communicates their suggestions and views to political and scientific leaders, decision- and policy-makers, supporters, business leaders, and the media at a national, regional, or global level, thus promoting international, intergenerational, and interdisciplinary co-operation and dialogue.
Éva Dékány is a founding member and former co-chair of the Hungarian Academy of Young Researchers, and has been a part-time senior researcher at the ELTE Faculty of Humanities – Centre for Theoretical Linguistics, Hungarian Research Centre for Linguistics since 1 February 2022.
