Central European Centre for Women and Youth in Science (CEC-WYS)
The objective of CEC-WYS is to empower woman and young scientists in Central Europe and to contribute to achieving gender equality in R&D.
The Central European Centre for Women and Youth in Science was funded for the period 2004-2007 by the European Commission under Framework Programme 6. Partners from Czech Republic, Hungary,Slovenia, Slovakia, France, Romania and Italy contributed to the project’s diverse activities.
CEC-WYS conducted the Enwise Workshop on Young Scientists, wrote a workshop report, Nurturing or Frustrating Ambition? and analysed a follow-up online questionnaire on early career stage researchers' perceptions of the issues they face. Results have been made publicly available and we aim to synergise with the activities of other organisations concerned with young scientists as a tool to lobby for policy development.
