About (English translation):
Non-profit organization created by men and women willing to commit themselves, outside their professional sphere, to the promotion of women in the technical and scientific fields and in particular to the promotion of women engineers. Aim of the organization: The promotion of equal opportunities in engineering education and careers in France and in Europe through studies, research activities and specific actions (conferences, symposia, publications), support to research activities and junior researchers as well as expert activities in France and in Europe. ECEPIE is particularly committed to working within European or national programmes in order to assess equal opportunities policies implemented by research programmes. In the past years ECEPIE has been an active member of several European Research projects (WOMENG, 5th FP, PROMETEA, 6th FP, HELENA, 7th FP). It is co-organiser of international conferences, and publisher of research documents. ECEPIE is full member of several networks as EPWS and the PROMETEA Network; ECEPIE works in close collaboration with French governmental institutions as CDEFI (Conference of the Heads of the French Engineering Schools), a research team - STEF - in Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan, and ESCHIL team in INSA, Lyon. For the present proposal ECEPIE will be in charge of the Coordination.
