The Femtec Network currently comprises ten major international technology companies: the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the Boston Consulting Group and leading technical universities in Germany and Switzerland. The alumnae of Career-Building are the closest allies in the network – part of them are organised in Femtec Alumnae e.V. In addition, we cooperate with numerous partners in order to realize our goals together:
The Femtec Network is currently composed of twelve well-known, internationally active partner companies and research institutes, such as the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.
The Femtec Alumnae e. V. is an association of and for scientists, engineers and experts from the STEM field (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics). It was founded in 2008 by graduates of the Femtec Career-Building Programme and has since grown into a network of more than 600 women.
The Femtec Alumnae e. V. represents women working in the STEM sector and is committed to an equal work culture. The association members encourage schoolgirls to choose a career in STEM, along with their mentor. The professional development of the members is supported by seminars and workshops. The association also offers the opportunity for exchange and networking – throughout Germany and worldwide.
