On the occasion of the “International Day of Girls and Women in Science” BIH and MDC kindly invite you to join the opening event for the exhibition “STEM Passion – a Journey Inspired by Women in Science” on February 13.
>> This page is only available in English. <<
Despite the fact, that women face higher barriers in science, they represent an important driving force for scientific progress in STEM disciplines. The exhibition STEM Passion by Elisabetta Citterio and Claudia Cagliano portraits women in science with different backgrounds and honors their success and will be shown at BIH from 13.2.-12.3.2024 at Rahel Hirsch Center for Translational Medicine.
The opening event, organized by Max Delbrück Center and Berlin Institute of Health, wants to celebrate women in science, give them more visibility and encourage to network with each other. We especially invite early- and midcareer women, non-binary, trans* and inter* scientists from all STEM disciplines to join the event. There will be plenty of opportunity to network, to get support to improve your public presentation on social media and in the numerous databases for women scientists and to become part of the big community of #womenInScience in Berlin.
