PROGRAM WOMEN IN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (WINS)

The program Women in Science and Technology (WINS) is organized by the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Fribourg and the School of Engineering and Architecture of Fribourg. The aim is to promote traditionally male technical and scientific careers to young women in critical stages of their studies (i.e. when taking choices determining their future professional careers). During two days, young women have the possibility to gain a deep overview of a technical or scientific field and related career possibilities by visiting industries and laboratories and to have discussions with women working in those fields on various career aspects and daily work life.

The National Centers of Competence in Research (NCCR) are a research instrument of the Swiss National Science Foundation
