EuChemS’ 2023 GWB
février 14 @ 10h00 - 11h30
EuChemS is proud to announce its 2023 Global Woman Breakfast online event, titled “Women scientists at the forefront of global conflicts”. The online event will take place on Tuesday 14 February 2023 10:00 – 11:30 Brussels time.
It is important to acknowledge that science and technology plays a significant role in contemporary conflict. While scientific achievements advanced the quality of life greatly, innovation in technology has also transformed conflicts across the globe in the last century. By taking this into account, we can see science’s responsibility in ensuring the minimisation of harm coming from conflict. As conflicts scenarios tend to increase exposure to abuse and discrimination, women represent one of the highly vulnerable groups in conflict. Therefore we find it crucial to hear and learn from the inputs of women researchers and scientists who are involved with science in conflict.
Therefore EuChemS’s 2023 GWB event will focus on the historical context of what roles women played in research areas relevant to conflict and crisis, such as nuclear and radiochemistry. The event will also examine contemporary efforts from woman researchers in fighting against chemical warfare, amongst other topics.
