Background: Interdisciplinary Symposium for Women in STEM Fields (ISINA)

Within the framework of the ISINA format at Chemnitz University of Technology, committed women from science and business come together to talk. Thus, female students, young scientists, and women in leadership positions exchange ideas on current topics and trends from the spectrum of "career paths for women". In addition, ISINA offers the opportunity to establish professional and professional contacts.

The focus is also on the professional and interdisciplinary exchange between the scientific and technical subjects as well as the networking of women in STEM fields with the aim of establishing promising cooperations.
