The European Platform of Woman Scientists [EPWS] Conference “New Perspectives on Women Scientists Careers in Europe” will be held on 11 June 2014 in Paris, France.

In 2003, the EPWS was created as an international non-profit organisation that represents the needs, concerns, interests, and aspirations of more than 12,000 women scientists in Europe and beyond.

The EPWS brings together networks engaged in promoting women scientists as well as individual women scientists. It promotes the empowerment of women scientists in the diversity of disciplines and at all stages of their careers. The members of the network are involved in policy development and implementation.

The EPWS Paris Conference 2014 is split up two topical sessions: “Gender in the new European Framework Programme Horizon 2020″ and “Up-skilling Women Scientists Careers – European and French perspectives”.

Further information and registration details can be found on the EPWS Paris Conference 2014 website.
