Be brave – women in science: Research Luxembourg team players launch video series in collaboration with the Ministry for Equality (MEGA) in Luxembourg

To showcase the many paths of women in science in Luxembourg, and to inspire young girls to pursue their passion for science, the institutions that form Research Luxembourg are launching a video series, in collaboration with MEGA, the Ministry for Equality in Luxembourg. The videos are produced by FNR.

Choosing the path of science and research can have many trajectories. To show a glimpse of what different science journeys can look like, we selected 6 women in science in Luxembourg, each representing a different institution, scientific focus, background, and function. From PhD candidates, to science communicators, lab specialists and a professor, the options for a career in science are many.

The women in science featured in this campaign are:

  • Michele Weber (FNR)
  • Elisabeth John (Scienteens Lab at Uni)
  • Djamila Aouada (SnT / Uni)
  • Denisa Naidin (LISER)
  • Lorieza Neuberger Castillo (IBBL/LIH)
  • Emmanuella Onyinyechi Osuebi-Iyke (LIST)

To mark International Day of Women and Girls in Science, MEGA is organising a press conference on Friday, 11 February, together with the Luxembourg Science Center, and with presence of FNR Secretary General Marc Schiltz, who will be representing Research Luxembourg.

Each video tells a story about a woman in science in Luxembourg, the path they have chosen and why, as well as their message for young girls interested in science. The campaign runs from 11 February (International Day of Women and Girls in Science) until 8 March (International Women’s Day) Watch the trailer below and stay tuned for the 6 videos over the next month!

All videos will be published on the dedicated FNR page Be Brave: Women [& Girls] in Science
