Women Researchers’ Festival
To celebrate International Women’s Day 2021, FEM and PINT OF SCIENCE are hosting the first ever Women Researchers’ Festival of Maastricht University!
The online Women Researchers’ Festival aims at promoting the innovative spirit of women researchers of all faculties of UM and all ranks, and to foster possible collaborations amongst them. Get to know what other women are researching in other faculties.
