Summer School for training female scientists - FP6 [jan.07]

Applications open for SUMMER SCHOOL 2007

The project ADVANCE, carried out under the 6th EU Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development, intends to promote the participation of women in science/research decision making and policy definition. It supports female scientists in acquiring research and career management skills and tools that help them build up their careers.

The core of this project is a Summer School for training female scientists. Applications are now open for the SUMMER SCHOOL 2007, which will take place at the Danube University Krems, Austria, in English.

The program consists of two modules, which cover topics concerning research setting in academia and industry, personal career development and visibility, and training of career relevant management skills.

The program is divided into two modules based on each other:
Module 1: 23.07.2007 - 03.08.2007
Module 2: 07.09.2007 - 09.09.2007
The participation is funded by the European Commission. There will be no attendance fee for the participation, but travel and subsistence costs have to be compensated individually. There is a possibility to apply for scholarship for travel and subsistence costs (see application form on the website below); the awarding will be done by the ADVANCE consortium along national and social criteria.

Deadline: 30 January 2007
