Description of the activities presented on the stand

Women are under-represented in scientific research, particularly in senior positions. In academia in Europe, less than one in eight of the top posts are held by women. In some countries, incentive measures have been put into place to redress this imbalance and improve gender equality. This stand will present examples of these positive action projects

Description of the activities presented on the stand

One of the factors resulting from, and in turn contributing to, the under-representation of women in science and research is the perceived isolation and lack of support experienced by individual women scientists within their sector. A number of networks and associations have developed databases of women scientists and engineers, with a view to facilitating contacts, highlighting experiences and serving as information and resource centres. This stand will present examples of such database initiatives.

Description of the activities presented on the stand

Studies show that girls are doing better at school and that more are moving into science subjects than in the past, but few persevere with science careers. This stand will present a set of measures that have been undertaken in Europe to encourage girls to study science at school and to take up scientific professions.

The two exhibitors will present examples of educational projects aimed at raising the interest of youngsters for science and technology. Focus is on original projects involving high-tech as well as low-tech, on testimonials by teachers and educators, and on types of co-operation between education (schools) and institutions (branch organisations from industry or research consortia). Visitors will find direct links to project co-ordinators in case they want to set up similar projects in their own country.

Description of the activities presented on the stand

How to bridge the gap between science and the public? "Raising Public Awareness of Science and Technology" aims at helping European citizens to understand better both the beneficial impact of science and technology on their day-to-day lives as well as limitations and possible implications of research and technological developments. Some of the most successful projects will exhibit their work in various fields of science awareness, ranging from a digital exhibition on life sciences to the fascinating question "is there life in the Universe"…
