12-13 Reception for the exhibition: Women in Limnology

About the exhibition:
The study of inland waters is fulfilled with passionate and fascinating women, who have vastly contributed to our current understanding of these precious ecosystems. There were few women during the grassroots of Limnology, yet their presence in the scientific community has become increasingly important over time. Today, women represent more than half of the total limnologists in training and early-career stages. However, as in many other fields of science, their presence decreases at high research and management positions. In this exhibition, we aim to rescue these profiles and invite you to meet some of the most relevant female limnologists at the international level and within the Iberian Peninsula. Moreover, we provide insights on the current gender situation and trends in limnology research to have a glance at the future.

No registration is needed, all are welcome.

Venue: The DIAS Auditorium
