We would like to invite you to attend the European Cooperation in Science & Technology (COST) workshop on ‘women in quantum technology’ on 12th October in Brussels, between 16:00-18:15 (it is possible to join the event online). The workshop is organized as part of the Microsoft event ‘Minding the gap: increasing women participation in policy and technology in Europe’. As a partner of this initiative, COST will provide a key contribution by focusing on the successful work by COST Action Nanoscale Quantum Optics in targeting gender imbalances. The Action’s gender balance advisor, Prof. Ruth Oulton, will organise a dedicated session ‘Women in quantum technology‘. Prof. Oulton will present surveys, discussions and awareness raising sessions undertaken at the beginning and end of the 4-year working period.
As we can read in workshop description – “Women talent is crucial for Europe’s growth. Europe’s digital transformation has given rise to a number of opportunities and challenges which have underlined the gender gap in critical fields such as technology, research, and innovation”.

Join the event to better understand gender attitudes from both women and men towards women working in science.
