Happy International Women’s day everyone, to celebrate it we are running a special quest!

To celebrate it we are running a quest with treats and prizes at the end! We are running this in collaboration with KMi and the Athena SWAN team.

We are a research lab composed by students, professionals, and academics who support and encourage diversity in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). We are passionate and enthusiastic about promoting diversity  in the STEM disciplines and we are committed to equality and opportunity. As a result of our commitment our lab obtained its Athena SWAN award at the beginning of 2017 and we are proud that are present, half of our PhD students are women, and our lab is represented by flags from all over the world!
