To celebrate the Day of Women and Girls in Science we give an overview of our “Minerva’s Daughters” Interview Series.

February 11, 2024

The United Nations want to promote more women in science. Too much potential is being wasted worldwide because only few highly qualified women are working in research. This is why the International Day of Women and Girls in Science was established. To mark this day, we have compiled an overview of all the interviews published so far in our "Minerva's Daughters" series.
