Empowering Women in Research (free webinar)

At scientifyRESEARCH, we are on a mission to empower researchers with funding information and enable the best research funding decisions. In celebration of International Women’s Day, we are hosting this webinar to discuss empowering women in research. We will talk about what we know best – research funding. Judy Mielke, Founder of scientifyRESEARCH, will share information about research funding dedicated to women.

This year, we are honored to have two guest speakers who have dedicated their time and attention to empowering women in research via Higher Education Resource Services-East Africa (HERS-EA), an educational non-profit organization incorporated in 2014 in Uganda and hosted at Makerere University Gender Mainstreaming Directorate. An affiliate of HERS Denver, Colorado, USA, HERS-EA advances women in East Africa (Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda) using similar strategies to those of HERS. The goal of the HERS-EA is to raise the proportion of women in leadership and management positions especially in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in East Africa to at least 50%. During this webinar, you will learn about the research driven interventions they implement

NorDoc Summer School 2023

Antibiotic resistance is an acute threat of global dimensions. In 2019, 1.3 million people are estimated to have died as a result of infections caused by resistant bacteria. Yet, no new class of antibiotics has reached healthcare in nearly four decades. Today, we have reached the point where new drugs alone are no longer sufficient and the problem is so complex that collaboration is absolutely necessary.

NorDoc Summer School 2023 will focus on how we can handle one of the greatest challenges of our time. We will meet in Uppsala and Stockholm, the intersection of Swedish life science, to learn from and about the many interdisciplinary initiatives that have their hub here, several with branches across the world.
