THE WOMEN IN SCIENCE PROJECT FOR ESOF 2020
Women in Science was established in 2012 thanks to co-financing from the Ministry of Education, University and Research, from an idea by Gianna Martinengo and Laura Moschini. On the occasion of ESOF, the project has expanded and enriched, with 10 new interviews with scientists from the Trieste area visible on the web portal, and has also included other initiatives: in addition to the talk event, a survey on the perception of gender balance in science and technology, and the Mini Maker Faire "Not just coding. STEM path experiences in schools." During the talk event on August 31, the results of the ongoing survey will be presented, open to all, women and men from any background and training who carry out scientific activities in the public or private sector, in companies or universities and research institutions.
