Final Report - WOMENINNANO (Strengthening the role of women scientists in Nano-Science)

Project ID: 16754
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY

Abstract

This is the final report of the WOMENINNANO project. Funded under the European Community's Sixth Framework Programme, WOMENINNANO aimed to help increase the number of women working in nanoscience and provide them with support. It also aimed to increase their visibility in the international scientific community by creating links at the national, regional and European levels between scientists, policymakers and society.

The report outlines the project activities conducted in three stages. These included reviewing the situation of women working in nanoscience, raising their media profile through public events and contacting decision makers. Mapping the competences of female nanoscience workers was conducted through the use of both institutional and individual surveys.
