ESMI // GENDER FUND PROGRAMME

ESMI is dedi­cated to promo­ting the parti­cipa­tion of women and scien­tists with young children in soft matter science. ESMI supports parents who attend events in­cluded in the ESMI Net­working plan. The ESMI gender pro­gramme may cover some of the extra costs incurred for child­care and travel.

Parents may experience problems to attend conferences, workshops, meetings and/or when accessing the ESMI laboratories due to the extra costs for the childcare, although their travel and living costs are funded. It is desirable that their own institution should take care of these extra costs for the childcare; in the case that this partially happens or it does not happen at all, the ESMI project runs the gender programme to improve the parents' scientist participation to the ESMI Activities. The ESMI Gender programme supports individual application for extra-costs for child care when an ESMI scientist attends events included in the ESMI Networking plan (see links below) and for travel costs to sup port female participation to events related to ESMI.
