Women in UniSysCat

We are committed to promoting women in science - and what could be more obvious than creating role models? Clear the stage for the women in UniSysCat!

Portrays of UniSysCat female researchers

We have portrayed female researchers who work as group leaders in the cluster of excellence UniSysCat. The successful women talk about their scientific careers, their motivation to do research, their ideas and goals, but also about one or two other formative details from their lives.

All this inspiring information should encourage young women to follow their own path in science. The individual portrays can be downloaded as posters by clicking on the respective image below.
