COST action genderSTE application

Given that contributing the concerns of its members to the wider science policy discussion in Europe, and particularly in the context of Horizon 2020 is one of the benefits our association is offering its members, the aim of genderSTE of enhancing the implementation of such gender related science policy issues will lead to mutual benefits of both the association, represented through the mWiSET group and the genderSTE COST action. The role models for women in mobility just described above contribute to objectives of genderSTE of promoting women’s careers in Science and Technology through dissemination of examples of best practice. Given the international scope of our association, it can contribute to a cross-country roadmap as genderSTE aims for.

We aim to do more role model publications in frame of this action, so, if you would like to write about your experience, please write us.
