International meeting on „women in science“
on the 22. November 2018 at the Hanse Wissenschaftskolleg in Delmenhorst.

This international meeting on „women in science“ invites you to participate in a general discussion on “women in science” from the perspective of different scientific cultures. So we address women from different countries and different scientific backgrounds, but also from different generations. Therefore, female PhD students from the chemistry Research Training Group “chemical bond activation” (DFG funding GK 2226) will participate in the discussions. We think that the Hanse Wissenschaftskolleg, Institute for Advanced Studies, is an ideal place for such a purpose. To foster a lively discussion the following program is foreseen.
