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.
