FemChem Scientific Workshop 2019

2nd FemChem
Scientific Workshop

TUtheSky 4th October 2019

Following the success of the 1st scientific workshop, FemChem returned with the 2nd scientific workshop on October 4th, 2019.  For the second year in a row, the workshop took place at TU the Sky. 17 scientific presentations were given and 10 posters presented in the poster session. More than 90 people attended the symposium, indicating that the interest in the event has increased since its first launch in 2018.

The Female researchers of the Faculty of Technical Chemistry came together to present and share their scientific work, joined for the first time by their male counterparts, which accounted for around 45% of the participants.

We were very pleased to welcome among us Dean Herbert Danninger, as well as the designated Dean, Prof. Marko Mihovilovic. It was a delight for all the early stage researchers who presented their work to be joined by the newly appointed Prof. Ruth Birner-Grünberger, who supported the workshop with the presentation of her own research.


The full day event gave the opportunity to the participants to get acquainted with the presenters’ work and generated intellectually stimulating scientific discussions. The exchange of scientific ideas was also on the focus of the poster session, which followed after the conclusion of the oral presentations

The event offered the opportunity of networking among female and male members of the scientific faculty during the breaks between scientific sessions. A buffet with a variety of refreshments and finger food supplemented the breaks. We would like to express our gratitude to the Vice Rector for providing the room and to the Department of Gender Competences for supporting us with food and drinks.
