Women In Science - How To Increase Women´s Participation In Science? - 21 November 2017, Brussels, Belgium

Wed, 2017-11-08 07:00
[Source: Research & Innovation] The main aim of the event is to discuss women´s participation in science and research and main challenges facing female scientists. The conference will bring together scientists, policy makers and experts to discuss conditions for women in science and the key factors behind the low representation of women in leading positions and within some scientific domains and fields of study. The conference will consist of two parts. Despite the fact that women represent half of the population, their representation in science, research and innovation lag behind. Nevertheless, a number of international organizations and European institutions have paid attention to gender equality in science, empowerment of female scientists and better use of their educational and intellectual potential. Thanks to these efforts and visibility of the topic, gender equality has become a theme of political and expert discussion. Yet at the same time, neither of these efforts has ensured equal representation of women in leading positions and within some scientific domains and fields of study.

This event will bring together stakeholders from academia, technology centres and industry working in the fields of nanotechnology and advanced materials, with special focus on pilot projects. Previous workshops concluded that there is the need to engage industry, SMEs, public and private investors in dialogue with the consortia that have completed or are running projects on pilot lines. The purpose is to develop a favorable ecosystem for materials upscaling. This in turn will support regional growth through fast deployment of new technologies.
