Women of NeurotechEU, 3rd edition, 7-8 March 2023, Cluj-Napoca

The NeurotechEU Alliance is thrilled to announce the third edition of our Women in Science event, taking place in Cluj-Napoca, Romania on March 7th and 8th, 2023. Hosted by Iuliu Hatieganu University of Medicine and Pharmacy in collaboration with Karolinska Institutet and the NeurotechEU Student Council, this event aims to empower and support women in the field of science and technology, fostering a more diverse and inclusive community.

Throughout the event, attendees will have the opportunity to engage in roundtable discussions, keynote speeches, and networking sessions with female scientists and professionals in the field of neurotechnology. We will also be hosting a communication workshop, providing valuable resources and support for the Alliance.

We believe that increasing the representation of women in science and technology is crucial for driving innovation and progress in the field. This event is an opportunity for attendees to not only learn from and connect with successful women in the field, but also to gain the tools and resources needed to advance their own careers.
