In honor of the Women’s International Day, CSC has launched a campaign to celebrate women in science in Finland. Read the stories of and hear the advice from ten great researchers contributing to science and research development in Finland:
Woman + Computational Science: Perfect Equation
Quoting from the webpage itself,
Regardless of the opportunities involved in using computational methods there is a gender division amongst the researchers using computational science methods. […] The goal is to highlight female researchers working with computational methods in Finnish universities and research institutes. […]
We wish, that encouraged by these examples girls and women would feel even more motivated in becoming researchers, studying technical and natural sciences, and especially in entering the world of computational science. Furthermore, the goal is to add awareness of gender equality in technical and scientific branches of science.
The patron of the campaign is the Minister of Education and Culture Sanni Grahn-Laasonen.
