2023’s summit line-up features 21 Nobel laureates and eminent scientists who will be speaking across ten plenaries and panel sessions.

This year we introduce six new speakers alongside our returning stalwarts. Let’s welcome Prof. David MacMillan, Prof. Brian Kobilka, Sir David Klenerman, Dr. Jack Dongarra, Dr. John Mather and Guest Speaker Prof Alison Woollard.


In scientific terms, fusion occurs when two atoms bond and fuse to form a single heavier atom. This process releases huge amounts of energy similar to the same process that powers the sun and creates stars. In the same vein, the #GYSS2023 offers bright young individuals the chance to interact and engage with top minds around the globe. This interaction ignites an explosion of ideas and innovations that ripples across the world. We call this, #FusionInSession.
