UEFISCDI in the Global Women’s Breakfast – Romania 2022

On February 16th, the CALIPER partner UEFISCDI participated in the Global Women’s Breakfast – Romania 2022. The National Research-Development Institute for Chemistry and Petrochemistry – ICECHIM Bucharest organised the first event of the IUPAC Global Women’s Breakfast series in Romania and invites all interested parties to join the initiative to support diversity in research.

The event aimed to celebrate the achievements of women in science and inspire young generations to pursue a career in research, as well as to celebrate together the UN International Day of Women and Girls in Science. During the webinar, UEFISCDI presented the development of the GEP and the start of the implementation phase and at the Q&A UEFISCDI responded to many questions regarding the steps needed in the development of a GEP.

Global Women’s Breakfast Romania aims to bring together researchers, women and men, from all types of research centres, who work in all fields of science to debate transdisciplinary issues and socialise in a virtual breakfast. The central objective is to facilitate the creation of an assertive community in order to overcome barriers to gender mainstreaming in research.

The event was held online and it was attended by 94 people, 71 females and 23 males.
