Young Statisticians Europe (YSE) is an initiative of a group of young professionals in statistics, econometrics and data analysis, launched during a workshop in France in October 2018 by 20 representatives from 8 European countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, Romania and Spain). It aims to develop a network of young statisticians at European level to facilitate idea and best practice exchange as well as better collaboration, both in research and teaching. The initiative has since received the support of FENStatS ), https://www.fenstats.eu/YSE. To this day, YSE has been joined by other European groups from Ireland, Italy and Slovenia. The official launch of the project was held on October 20th, 2020, to celebrate World Statistics Day.
