Empowering Women in Science

On the occasion of the International Women’s Day, Science Europe highlights the experiences of the Chairs of its Working Groups, at the time of this campaign all accomplished women.

Women make important contributions to the field of research and innovation. Whether they make fundamental scientific discoveries, find new ways to translate research results into real-world applications, or work to create optimal conditions for researchers to perform at their best, their impact is undeniable.

However, women’s contributions to research and innovation are often a lot less visible than men’s. In addition, not only the research profession is stereotypically associated with men, but women remain widely underrepresented in science.

At Science Europe, we have the pleasure to closely collaborate with many highly skilled women from across Europe to improve conditions for researchers. We would like to celebrate their activities and achievements. With this campaign, we aim to make women’s essential contributions to the research ecosystem more visible.


European Higher Education Organization

European Higher Education Organization is a public organization carrying out academic, educational and information activities on higher education in Europe. The EHEO general plan stresses that: Higher education systems require adequate funding and, as an investment in economic growth, public spending in higher education should be protected. The challenges faced by higher education require more flexible governance and funding systems, which balance greater autonomy for education institutions with accountability to stakeholders. Thus, EHEO plans: improve academic and scientific interaction of universities; protect the interests of universities; interact more closely with public authorities of European countries; popularize European higher education in the world; develop academic mobility; seek funding for European universities.
