Since the beginning in 2017, the CRC 1114 is among the supporters of the “I, Scientist” conference on gender, career paths and networking, organized by the Lise-Meitner-Gesellschaft e.V. The first conference took place from 12 to 14 May 2017 at Freie Universität Berlin. The second conference is taking place on 25 and 26 May 2018 in Berlin-Adlershof.
The conference aims to increase the visibility of female role models in the natural sciences, to introduce young researchers to a variety of career options and provide them with networking opportunities, and to raise awareness of gender-based biases. The conference is designed and organized by PhD students and young researchers in the natural sciences and mathematics for their peers.
