Meet some of the women in science

Academia has no room for gender inequality. What we do have room for, however, is research and education. Not only today but all year round, women here contribute to making the world a bit better. And today, on the International Women's Day, we want to highlight some of them.
Research in forefront, esteemed awards, and government assignments. At Chalmers, the Department of Technology Management and Economics, hundreds of women contribute to the development of society with their research, teaching and studies. We have chosen to present the amazing work which some of them have conducted that we have presented in articles during the last year - dated back to March 8, 2017.
