Events and Programmes
The NYA has her core values entrenched in integrity and excellence in research, and fostering research collaborations among young researchers nationally and internationally.
RESEARCH EQUIPMENT DATABASE
The development of instruments maintains a symbiotic relationship with science as a whole; advanced tools enable scientists to answer increasingly complex questions.
The Research Equipment Database is an online open-access database designed to enhance the visibility of available scientific equipment in any given geographical location. This will in turn spur research collaboration and partnership, as well as access to and optimisation of the research facilities available within a given geographical area
