Council of Young Scientists (CYS) — a subdivision of the Institute of Microbiology and Virology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, which unites researchers of the Institute under the age of 35. The activity of CYS is carried out on a public basis, based on the principles of voluntariness, equality, legality and transparency.
The purpose of the activity of the council of young scientists is the representation, protection, implementation of professional, intellectual, legal, social and everyday interests and rights of scientific youth of the Institute of Microbiology and Virology named after D.K. Zabolotny National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
The main tasks of the CYS are:
- assistance in solving the problems of scientific and cultural and sports activities of young scientists and in the professional and social growth of the scientific youth of the Institute;
- promotion of informing young scientists about scientific events held at the Institute and beyond (conferences, congresses, seminars, symposiums, etc.);
- organization and holding of conferences, lectures and seminars for young scientists of the Institute in order to stimulate their scientific research;
- participation in the organization and development of inter-institutional cooperation, cooperation between institutions of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and international scientific and cultural cooperation of young scientists;
- expression of the opinion of scientific youth on various aspects of professional activity at the Academic Council and before the Directorate of the Institute for nomination of candidates for prizes, scholarships and scientific grants.
According to the approved Regulations of CYS [in Ukrainian], її персональний склад обирається терміном на 3 роки. Діючу РМВ було обрано на загальних зборах молодих дослідників 5 липня 2022 року.
