Final Report - SET-ROUTES (A pan-European women ambassadors programme bringing role models to schools and universities to stimulate and mobilise girls and young women for studies and careers in SET)

Project ID: 36715
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY

Abstract

Girls and boys alike have had the opportunity to talk to female role models coming from all walks of science: astronomy, ecology, medicine, molecular biology, particle physics, space science and satellite engineering - thanks to the efforts of SET-ROUTES. Their aim was to mobilise successful women in science, engineering and technology (SET) to go into schools and universities throughout Europe and beyond.

The project's final report which includes photos of participants. They emphasise that the participation of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO) and the European Organisation for Particle Physics (CERN), provided European schoolchildren with direct access to an incomparable pool of Europe's best female scientists.
