PROGRAMME ACTIVITIES

SUMMER SCHOOL "WOMEN IN SCIENCE. REFLECTIONS AND EXPERIENCES FROM THE NORTH AND SOUTH OF EUROPE AND THE UNITED STATES". EL ESCORIAL, JUNE 29 - JULY 3.

Women have contributed to science from its beginning, although this has not been fairly acknowledged. From the studies of science, it is widely described the lack of equality among women and men concerning scientific and technological production, as well as the existence of obstacles that are specific to women when accessing relevant positions in the academia, the industry and the administration. Such barriers have led to a deep reflection on the social nature of science and technology and on the strategies in order to overcome this inequality.

This school aims at facing this reflection, as well as at deepening on the situation of women in the science systems in various countries such as Spain, Norway, Iceland and United States. We also aim at identifying best practices on the promotion of scientific entrepreneurship enhancing women’s and men’s initiatives, at knowing the personal experience of researchers face to face, as well as at identifying what is the gender treatment in the main source of funding for science in Europe, the Horizon2020 programme.

The course gathers internationally well known researchers who will talk us about the conclusions of number of studies, approaches and perspectives in Europe and United States of America, as well as about their experience and proposals for a higher equality in this field. The combination of lectures and round tables shall allow participation and exchanges among attendees and speakers. The school is addressed to bachelor and post-degree students in experimental and social sciences, to active researchers and technologues, and to professionals in the administration related to scientific, educational, entrepreneurship and equality policies. We aim at exchanging knowledge and experiences and also at identifying further cooperation opportunities.

 Sustainability is a major challenge that mankind is bound to face in the XXI century.

Learning to live in a sustainable planet and at the same time being able to provide food, water and basic care for Earths population will require strong political leadership and focused, cutting-edge interdisciplinary scientific research.

At a scientific level, sustainability poses a number of formidable problems. To face them, interdisciplinary teams need to be formed, and within them, mathematicians will play a key role.

In mathematical terms, modelling, analysis and advanced computation are key tools needed to address relevant issues in social and natural sciences related to sustainability.



Within NILS Science and Sustainability, the following measures shall be funded:

Students mobility Bachelor and master students in Spanish universities, in order to carry out studies in universities located in Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, within their official study programme. during academic year 2014-2015.

Researchers mobility Researchers in experimental sciences in Spain on the one side, and in Norway, Iceland or Liechtenstein in the other side, in any moment of their career, in order to carry out joint research and advanced training activities dealing with problems related to Earth Sustainability and Human Well-Being.

 

Funding
