The SA-YSSP is a three-month capacity-building and academic training program modeled on IIASA’s successful long-running Young Scientists Summer Program. The SA-YSSP takes place during the Southern Hemisphere summer from November to February.
The program this year welcomes 36 PhD students from 21 countries. Each participant will work with a supervisor team including researchers from IIASA and Southern Africa.
More information about the program is available here.
The opening presentations by the participants will also be live streamed on Thursday 28 November from 0900 SAST (0800 CET).
