The two young life scientists will receive the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Fellowship from Andrée van Es, president of the Dutch UNESCO Commission in an award ceremony at the Koninklijke Hollandsche Maatschappij der Wetenschappen in Haarlem. 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).
