EPWS Booklet – Interviews of the Month 2015-2017


The European Platform of Women Scientists EPWS is an umbrella organisation bringing together networks of women scientists and organisations committed to gender equality in research, so as to raise the voice of women scientists in the European research policy debate. EPWS is concerned with all scientific disciplines throughout the European Union (EU) and the countries associated with the EU Programmes for Research and Technological Development.

EPWS member networks and organisations are of key importance to research and the research policy process: they are striving for the empowerment of women scientists, for increasing the number of women scientists in top positions and for the integration of the gender dimension in science and research.

The EPWS Booklet gathers the updated versions of the first 27 interviews with EPWS full member associations which have been published since 2015 in the ‘Interview of the Month’ section of the EPWS website.

It gives an excellent insight into the nature, variety, missions and functions of European networks of women scientists and their contributions to the research policy debate at regional, national, and international levels. The booklet can also be very useful to stakeholders looking for collaboration partners in a European country.

You can read the Booklet’s Foreword, by EPWS’ Honorary President Dr. Brigitte Mühlenbruch, here.
