Fraunhofer Science Campus 2018

The springboard for women into research

Science is becoming more and more female. The Fraunhofer Society wants to support this trend and invites to the “Fraunhofer Science Campus” from September 24 to 26, 2018 in Braunschweig and Hannover. In order to increase the proportion of women scientists at Fraunhofer, the Science Campus was launched together with several partner universities.

In September of this year the Fraunhofer Science Campus will take place at the four Fraunhofer Institutes IST, ITEM, IWES und WKI in Braunschweig and Hannover. During the three-day event, students and graduates of mathematics, informatics, natural sciences and technology, in short: MINT, gain an insight into different research fields and the work in applied research.

The participants of the Science Campus have the opportunity to look over the scientists’ shoulders of at the institutes, to deepen their knowledge in selected seminars and lectures, to make contacts and to get a valuable guide to their career planning in high-quality workshops from “Design Thinking” to “Conversation Techniques” and “Business Manual”.

The main topics at the Fraunhofer IST are ranging from mechanical engineering to medicine. The participants of the Science Campus will learn the crucial role of coating and surface technology in diamond-sharpening knives, in diamond water purification - without chemicals, intelligent washers or tools that measure force and temperature or a laboratory in the bag that is suitable for stem cell production.
