About the event

This networking event provides a structured space for professional and personal networking with women scientists from different institutions, disciplines, and career stages. We will test the waters of potential scientific collaboration, practice active listening, and learn how colleagues approach networking, collaboration, and problems in their work, both within and outside their field. Given our participants' diverse backgrounds and career stages, this event will also serve as a platform for inspiration and support in reaching scientific and academic career goals and/or overcoming challenges.

We will have Dr. Eleonora Secchi, Dr. Isabella Schalko, and Prof. Dr. Marie Schoelmerich as our invited speakers. They will share their views on what it takes to be successful as a scientist in academia and give specific career and networking tips.

Science-Career Bites

All participants are asked to bring one PowerPoint slide to provide a 2-minute high-level overview of:

  1. who they are,
  2. the main research question they tackle
  3. a specific research question they’d like to answer or a problem they’d like to address, and
  4. their career stage, a specific challenge, and/or next steps to reach their career goal.

Please use this slide template and send your pitch slide to sema.karakurtfischer@eawag.ch by Monday, May 6th, at 17:00 pm at the latest.

The slides will be projected at the front of the room as participants provide their 2-minute pitch at the beginning of our event.
