systemd-networkd: wireless configuration does not work

Have a working cable connection using systemd-networkd, but wireless does not work:

erlangen:~ # networkctl 
IDX LINK             TYPE               OPERATIONAL SETUP     
  1 lo               loopback           carrier     unmanaged 
  2 wlp3s0           wlan               no-carrier  configuring
  3 enp0s31f6        ether              routable    configured

3 links listed.
erlangen:~ # 

Any idea?

wpa_supplicant is running, but scanning does not work:
