More Women in Science Research!
What chances and opportunities do young women with a STEM background have at Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft? To answer this question, seven Fraunhofer institutes in the region of Cologne/Bonn opened their doors from October 5-8 and invited the students to gain practical impressions of their work. Specifically, the Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS, the Institute for Applied Information Technology FIT, the Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing SCAI, the Institute for Secure Information Technology SIT as well as the Institutes for High Frequency Physics and Radar Techniques FHR, and the Institute for Communication, Information Processing and Ergonomics FKIE participated.
Next to these institute visits and presentations, the exciting and varying programme of the Science Campus also contains workshops and coaching. Anja Fornoff and Sylvia Moede from Femtec inspired the participants in the trainings Leading Competence, Self-Assertion in Business, Application and Work Life Balance, realized coaching and also moderated the panel discussion at the closing event.
The next Science Campus will take place from March 7-10, 2016 in the region of Bremen / Bremerhaven, also with participation of Femtec. For more information, please klick here.
