On 14 September at 18:00, the next ENLIGHT lecture will be hosted and livestreamed. Prof Steven Caluwaerts talks about the VLINDER project.

On 14 September at 18:00, this semesters’ third ENLIGHT lecture will be hosted and livestreamed online. This session investigates the issue of equity in the broad context of science and technology as many people are facing unequal treatment or structural obstacles due to gender, ethnicity, or socio-economic positions. Furthermore, the unequal distribution of scientific infrastructures and data due to unequal resources is an obstacle to more equity in science.

In this lecture therefore three experts of the ENLIGHT network give presentations on how different projects work to reduce inequalities in science and technology from different angles.

Each lecture is followed by a networking event for the scientific community. In the brand-new virtual space, the researchers from ENLIGHT universities can not only continue the discussion on the lecture`s topic but also use the opportunity to to identify common research interests.
