As you’re finalising your schedule for ESOF, I wanted to remind you of some great talks and events happening around the city aimed at women in science. Thanks to WITS and WISER for their help in compiling this list. If I have forgotten anything, please add via comments below. Hope to see you at some of them!
Since I began blogging last year, the Science Gallery has become my home away from home. A space where I can be immersed in science. Where I can be amazed and be challenged. The exhibitions on display are a brilliant resource but they are just the foundation around which something wonderful has grown. A community which I am proud to be a part of is developing and it is brimming with ideas!
How would you imagine a Science Olympics? The best of the world in one place for a short period of time. Lifelong commitment, passion, shining on the world stage. A battle of the minds. Yesterday at the launch of the Dublin City of Science 2012, Minister Richard Bruton compared the Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF) with an “Olympics of Science” so I wondered could it live up to this aspiring analogy.
