The CEWIS aims at supporting scientific exchange and careers of young researchers. I cite from their invitation:
“The mission of CEWIS is to spotlight extraordinary women in biological sciences. CEWIS also aims to demonstrate how exciting and rewarding a career in biological sciences can be and to encourage young researchers to pursue such a career for themselves.
We are proud to announce that the Symposium will feature talks by outstanding female scientists from all over the world, including Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard (Nobel Prize 1995) and Ulla Bonas (Leibniz Prize 2011).”
Besides the scientific program, a Career Mentoring Workshop gives a limited number of participants the chance to reflect about their next career step. For taking part, you have to send an additional letter of motivation.
