#NCCRWomen – LIVES presents the careers of 5 female researchers to inspire young people

In this anniversary week of the Women's Strike, LIVES profiles 5 of its female researchers. Laura Bernardi, Morgane Künzi, Emilie Rosenstein, Aurélie Chopard-dit-Jean and Clémentine Rossier took part in the project and conveyed a message to young girls about their daily lives as researchers. A short clip is unveiled every day between 14 and 18 June on Youtube as well as the various LIVES social networks and NCCR Women platforms.

  • These videos are part of the #NCCRWomen campaign launched by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) to commemorate the 50th anniversary of women's right to vote in Switzerland. From 8 March to 31 October 2021, a series of videos are aimed at young girls in secondary school and women starting their university studies in Switzerland, to show what the daily life of a female researcher is like and to make academic careers more accessible. From medical imaging to language sciences to life course studies, more than 100 academic careers are highlighted. The 22 National Centres of Competence in Research (NCCR) are participating in the #NCCRWomen campaign and are each posting their videos covering various scientific disciplines on social networks for a week.
