Welcome to Women and Girls in Science @ University of Namur!

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.  This year, due to the sanitary situation, a short online event was held on 11 February 2022.

This event aims at promoting the access of women and girls to science and technology as well as their full and fair participation. It reminds the important role of women in the scientific community and constitutes a great opportunity to encourage girls and young women to participate in the scientific developments.
