Visiting program for female scientists


UniCat has launched a visiting program for female scientists to increase the international presence of women in UniCat in order to give female scientists the opportunity to enlarge their exchange and to network internationally. In this context UniCat members have the possibility to invite excellent female scientists from all over the world to Berlin for a research stay in UniCat for up to three months. UniCat participates significantly in financing the costs of this program.
