To stimulate girls to choose a career in science, the Brussels institute for scientific research, Innoviris, launched a campaign 'Women Award in Technology and Science'. Six candidates have been selected, of which four are VUB researchers: Ann Dooms (Professor Mathematics), Lieve Lambrechts (Assistant and researcher at the Applied Physics Research Group), Damya Laoui (Team leader Tumor Immunology) and Elise Elsacker (PhD researcher at the Architectural Engineering Lab).
The public will choose their five favourite candidates, who will present their research to a jury. To make your choice and vote for a candidate, visit the website. Voting is open until the end of january 2018. The winner of the competition will be announced on the 25th of February 2018 during the closing event. She will become an ambassador for all women scientists in Brussels.
