FemaleINSPIRES stands for International Network and Support Platform for Interdisciplinary Research Engineers and Scientists.
The project is funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering (UK), as part of the part of the pandemic preparedness call.
FemaleINSPIRES aims to bring together female STEM researchers from seven countries (UK, Nigeria, Ghana, Malawi, Indonesia, Egypt and Kazakstan) by providing an online platform and community of practice.It also aims to support female early career researchers by providing opportunities for personal and professional development.
The motivation for FemaleINSPIRES came from the established worldwide gender imbalance in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). This has been amplified by the global COVID-19 pandemic which has affected negatively the careers of women in STEM.
