Irène Joliot-Curie Programme

One important strategic aim of PRISMA Cluster of Excellence is to achieve equality between male and female scientists at the institutional and research level. The Irène Joliot-Curie Programme has been set up to support women in all phases of their scientific careers both at the cluster and in their broader research work.

The programme was launched in December 2013 and invites all female scientists at PRISMA to help design and structure the programme by contributing their own suggestions and sharing their particular concerns. For this aim, the initiator of the Irène Joliot-Curie Program, Professor Concettina Sfienti of the Institute for Nuclear Physics at JGU, has started an online platform for interaction and communication for all the female researchers at PRISMA. In addition the IJCP offers workshops, training sessions, and lectures for which the network can suggest topics.
