The RYA promotes interdisciplinary collaboration between its members and with others, and creates opportunities for its members to establish themselves as new leaders in their discipline.
Some members join the RYA book club. During these regular discussions general scientific books are discussed from several prospectives. Topic of the first session is Unflattening, a graphic thesis written by Nick Sousanis.
To stimulate interdisciplinarity RYA will organize so-called serendipity sessions about topics that could be viewed from different prospectives and scientific disciplines. The first topic that would be explored is coffee. More information will follow soon.
