The Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) has this year started its campaign "WoMen in Science", highlighting the importance of gender balance in research and innovation. As part of this campaign, we are happy to host a panel event featuring talks, video interviews and panel discussions trying to answer questions like: "Why do we need gender balance?", "How can we reach and maintain it?" and "And what can science institutions do?"

Register now using the link below and join us along our esteemed speakers, panelists and guests!

You can learn more about the panelists here.

Following the event, we cordially invite you to a light refreshment.

Due to the current regulations, we have a maximum capacity of 100 people onsite. In case you cannot attend, kindly let us know. For all others, online access will be provided to follow the event.

Please bring a FFP2 mask, as well as a certificate of your 2G-status with you (vaccination record / proof of recovery) and arrive a few minutes ahead of time to register.
