Strong women in the SNI network

This year, the SNI held a range of events celebrating International Women’s Day on 8 March.

Some of the women in the SNI network produced short videos for the SNI in which they introduced themselves and discussed the topics they research. (Video)

In honor of International Women’s Day, the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) launched a video series featuring women in the fields of mathematics, astronomy and physics (MAP). Professor Ilaria Zardo, who also collaborated in the SNI video, is one of the scientists spotlighted as part of the series. (SCNAT portrait Ilaria Zardo)

Another similar campaign, “Meet the NCCR women,” also began on 8 March in recognition of 50 years since women gained the right to vote in Switzerland. Through to the end of October, women working in one of the country’s 22 active National Centers of Competence in Research (NCCRs) will talk about who they are, what they do and the motivation for their research.(YouTube channel «Meet the NCCR women»)
