ABOUT WiSS

The 1st Women in Science Symposium (WiSS) aims at increasing the awareness of young scientists of their own potential and career opportunities, with special emphasis on women's presence in the scientific world.

The symposium is funded by the "Excellent science" programme of the Ministry of Education and Science (formerly Ministry of Science and Higher Education).

During the two-day symposium, the participants will come together with successful, renowned scientists of diverse professional backgrounds including academia, industry, scientific publishing and sociology.

The PINE platform provided by Lively.pl will be the ideal environment for participants and speakers to interact and to share their experiences during the talks, the scientific speed-dating sessions and the round table discussion.

The program that we have designed includes numerous lectures and three workshops. Due to its international character, the symposium is held entirely in English.

Registration is free of charge, but we have a limited number of places so secure yours now!
