Study with family
The Femtec network is growing! We are very happy about the partnership with HAWtech (HochschulAllianz für Angewandte Wissenschaften). The common goal is to inspire more female talents for the MINT sector, to network them and to increase career options after graduation. The first step is to create a viable offering through analysis and conceptual design in 2021- piloting is planned for 2022. As Femtec, we will contribute our expertise and motivation to realize an attractive scholarship program for female students in STEM subjects and create sustainable synergies. We are very pleased to have six strong technical universities as new partners: Aachen University of Applied Sciences, HTW Berlin, Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences, HTW Dresden, Esslingen University of Applied Sciences, and Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences.
"Traumberuf Professorin" is a mentoring program for women from business and administration with the aim of attracting more female professors to universities of applied sciences (HAW) in Baden-Württemberg. More than 100 tandems are formed in four rounds, each consisting of a mentee and a professor from an HAW. The mentees also receive a qualification program and the opportunity to regularly exchange experiences. Through the project, a networking of women in science and business takes place, which makes it easier to reach women specifically in future appointment procedures and research projects.
The seven project partners of the joint project are: Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences - Technology and Economics, Stuttgart Media University, Nürtingen-Geislingen University of Applied Sciences, Rottenburg University of Forestry, Ludwigsburg University of Applied Sciences for Public Administration and Finance, and Mannheim and Constance Universities.
The joint project "Dream Job Professor" is funded for five years by the European Social Fund and the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts Baden-Württemberg.
"Komm mach MINT" is a national pact founded in 2008 on the initiative of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research with the aim of changing the image of STEM professions in society and getting more women interested in scientific and technical courses of study, as well as attracting female university graduates to careers in business and science.
