On the occasion of the international day Women in Science – aiming to make the achievements and specific challenges of female scientists more visible – we invite all those interested to join us in a cozy atmosphere with snacks and drinks.

Students of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences will give short talks about their conversations with female scientists from all over the world. What motivated these women to go into science? How do they go about their daily lives? What specific challenges have they experienced along the way?

We look forward to the exchange of thoughts! Please let your colleagues and fellow students know!
