WYSS π Community
The future of science and technology is dependent of our young!
World Young Scientist Summit (WYSS) is a global event by the youth and for the youth! It is a shared wish of various countries and common expectation of worldwide youth in the wake of COVID-19 to conduct people-to-people exchanges in science and technology for promoting youth innovation and cooperation. WYSS aims to stage an international platform for open communication, where great ideas can be swapped and win-win cooperation with mutual benefits initiated among young scientists and between scientists and entrepreneurs, to inject confidence, wisdom and strength into our concerted response to global challenges.
The youth stand at the heart and core of WYSS. In 2020, under the auspice of WYSS, π Community has been officially established as a global, open, inclusive and nonprofit organization. It is aimed at engaging front-line young scientists with a great sense of social responsibility and a solid background in scientific research, outstanding entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, artists, as well as young talents from various sectors, in an integrated effort to carry out multitiered and interdisciplinary people-to-people exchanges and cooperation in science and technology. This can allow more young talents to work together in sharing the opportunities brought by international scientific and technological revolution, seeking solutions for worldwide innovative development and constructing a global community of scientific and technological innovation.
The community is named after π, a symbol of “infinite potential, power and hope”. By creating a globalized network of resources, π Community is committed to acting as an optimal platform for its members to grow and meanwhile use their extraordinary talent, innovation, sense of mission and concern about public welfare to attract and help more of their young counterparts to become game-changers and leaders of the future.
