The WOMEN+ Symposium, the first international symposium focusing on Greek women scientists, is taking place on October 1-3, 2021, aiming to bring together Greek scientists working in Greece and abroad and promote their work to the general public.
The WOMEN+ Symposium is organised by four groups (Greek Women in STEM, R.E.A.L. Science, Lean in Greece: Women in Tech, Greek Girls Code) with purely voluntary action that joined forces in order to highlight the scientific achievements of Greek women working in the STEM sector, and is supported by Moonshot News.
Through interactive talks and scientific panels with scientists in biomedical sciences, physics, chemistry, engineering, technology, and related fields, organisers aim to promote networking and interdisciplinary collaborations, to bring together female scientists and to communicate their work to the wider public.
Speakers include Lina Ntokou for Greek Women in STEM, Ellen Sinopoulos for REAL Science, Marily Nika and Matina Thomaidou for Lean in Women in Tech Greece, Lilian Balatsou for Greek Girls Code, as well as a number of prominent female professionals in Technology, Engineering, Biosciences, Mathematics and Physics, Academia, and Startups.
Early career scientists awards will be also delivered to exceptional women in the STEM fields. Applications are open until September 15th.
The 3-day WOMEN+ Symposium will be held online, English being the main language. Participation is free but registration is required.
