The purpose of ”Women in Graphene” is to give female researchers in the project the opportunity to discuss their research and the situation for women in the field. An inventory of specific needs of female researchers in the partner countries is envisaged, with the goal to offer tailored actions to support female researchers within the Graphene Flagship and to reach out and inspire more women to become involved in science in general and graphene in particular.
The Women in Graphene network was launched during Graphene Week 2015. As a part of Graphene Week 2016, there was a separate session with invited speakers. In March 2017, a Career Development Day was held. Further plans for 2017 include a session at the 2017 Graphene Week with focus on innovation and entrepreneurship.
