In Belgian higher education, women are underrepresented in scientific, technological, engineering and mathematical (STEM) courses. At the same time, the labour market often struggles with a shortage of higher educated STEM profiles. In order to tackle these trends, Innoviris is again this year looking for a female ambassador who inspires women and young people in Brussels about science and technology. In order to do so, the science ambassador receives €10,000.
Are you eligible?
- You have a degree in Exact Sciences or Technology.
- You work in the Brussels-Capital Region.
- You have more than 5 years professional experience in the science and/or technology field.
- You have already undertaken at least one science awareness-raising activity.
The procedure in 3 steps
