Venue: Budapest, Hungary
For the first time, we are jointly organising the meeting with ALLEA (the Association of ALL European National Academies).

The Young Academy of Europe will also be a co-organiser. We are grateful to the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, who will host the event.
The program and website will be launched in January 2017. There will be a registration fee for this event, at a discounted rate for AE and YAE members.
At the conference we will present the 2017 Erasmus Medal; a new AE senior prize in the field of Plant Sciences - The Adam Kondorosi Senior award and also a Gold medal to Helga Nowotny, for her service to European science policy. ALLEA will present their 2017 Madame de Stael prize. We will also award 10 Burgen Scholarships to young, unestablished researchers working in Hungary.
As usual there will be a dedicated 'New Members' presentation session to formally welcome our 2016 cohort during the programme.
