For this year’s annual meeting, we’re excited to introduce a new collaboration with the Jacobs Foundation. The Jacobs Foundation Research Fellows (JRFs) are a peer-group to the Global Scholars — a competitively-selected international group of early- and mid-career researchers spanning a wide range of disciplines, including psychology, neuroscience, biology, educational sciences, sociology, medical sciences and computer science. Aligning with the goals of the Jacobs Foundation, JRFs’ research relates primarily to aspects of child and youth development.
Our aim in bringing our two groups together is to foster an exchange of ideas across an expanded reach of disciplines, perspectives and countries — and to spark the beginning of some novel, potentially unexpected and high-risk cross-disciplinary collaborations that will take your research in directions you wouldn’t ordinarily have the opportunity to explore.
These meetings are by invitation only.
