The programme is followed by drinks (17.00 – 18.00).

About the Fellowship

The For Women in Science Fellowship aims to stimulate the career of talented female life scientists. Even though women increasingly attain the highest academic levels, they are still under-represented at the top levels of scientific research. Long term goal of the fellowship is to contribute to the increase of women professors at Dutch universities. The Dutch For Women in Science Fellowship is a joint venture between L’Oréal, UNESCO, NIAS and the Dutch Network of Women Professors (LNVH).
