Women in Science aims at contributing to the building of a scientific citizenship for all, women and men. It foresees the organization of a mix of interconnected initiatives designed for a wide and diverse audience. The main objective is to promote higher awareness about the role and participation of women in Science and Technologies, providing visibility to the existing perspective in this area, encouraging  women’s presence and  supporting their growth so as to reduce the existing gender gap.

Women in Science is launching a survey open to everybody, women and men, regardless education and employment who carry out scientific activities in the public or private sector, in companies, universities and  or research institutes. The objective of the survey is to collect and measure subjective perception and awareness regarding both the gender balance in science and technology and the enhancement of women’s presence and role.

Just take part in the survey. It’ll only take 10 minutes and it’s anonymous
