Women in Science

Women in Science – WiSE – is a supportive network aiming to inspire and encourage collaboration between women in academia.

WiSEThe network is hosted and financially supported by the Department of Electrical Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology. The target group for the activities arranged by WiSE is primarily researchers at Chalmers and researchers engaged in MedTech West.

WiSE´s vision is equal opportunities for women and men to qualify for positions, and to make a career in academia. W​​​​iSE aims at providing a dynamic and inspiring network, and to motivate women who want to move forward in their academic careers and want to share their experiences in doing so.

National and international senior female researchers are invited by WiSE to hold seminars and to serve as role models. About ten lunch seminars are organised every year.  The seminars are open to everyone with an interest in learning from female role models within academia. Especially welcome are participants from Chalmers, MedTech West, University of Gothenburg, Sahlgrenska Academy, and University of Borås.

The network was founded in 2011, as part of the EU project “Female role models and partners”, primarily focusing on researchers in medical engineering at Chalmers and MedTech West.
