Be brave - Women in Science campaign

Research Luxembourg team players return with second season of video series in collaboration with the Ministry for Equality (MEGA) in Luxembourg.

To showcase the many paths of women in science in Luxembourg, and to inspire young girls to pursue their passion for science, the institutions that form Research Luxembourg have joined forces for the second season of the video series -Women & Girls in Science-, in collaboration with MEGA, the Ministry for Equality in Luxembourg.

From February 11 to March 8

The campaign will be launched on the 11 February, the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. On this occasion, an episode of Lisa Burke’s podcast -In Conversation with Lisa Burke-- broadcast every Saturday on RTL Today - will be dedicated to the subject. The programme will feature participants in the campaign as well as members of the Luxembourg research community involved in gender equality issues.

From 11 February to 8 March - International Women’s Day - two videos will be published per week.

Be brave - Women & Girls in Science 2023

To show a glimpse of what different science journeys can look like, the six women featured in this series represent different institutions, scientific focus, backgrounds, and functions. From a PhD candidate, a research facilitator, to research scientists and professors, the stories told in this second season reflect the many options for a career in science and research in Luxembourg.

Each video tells a story about a woman in science in Luxembourg, the path they have chosen and why, as well as their message for young girls interested in science.
