Join us to the online scientific & outreach conferences held at UNamur in the framework of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science!

The International Day of Women and Girls in Science takes place every 11th of February, following the declaration by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 22nd of December 2015. It aims at promoting the access of women and girls to science and technology as well as their full and fair participation. This event reminds the important role of women in the scientific community. It constitutes a great opportunity to encourage girls and young women to participate in scientific developments. This year, the University of Namur takes fully part in this day. In this context, a scientific conference [in English] will highlight the research contributions of women from UNamur and promote the interaction among them and our fellow colleagues.

Check out our invited speakers. The programme is available online:

In the evening, an outreach conference [in French] is organised in collaboration with Confluent des Savoirs: Do not hesitate to spread the word, specifically to non-scientists and younger generations!

Looking forward to welcoming you to our conferences!
