Last January, AIJU technical staff traveled to Alexandria (Romania) to attend the first meeting of the European project FEMALES – Female Legends of Science.

The project is based on gender equality and non-discrimination between women and men in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). It is also intended to enhance the innovative spirit and creativity.

The main objectives of the project are to highlight the role of women in STEM fields, through examples of established women in the field and who today are great references. It is also intended to fight stereotypes in the educational stage, providing women with inspiration about successful women in their professional field.

This project is coordinated by the BAHCESEHIR Foundation of the University of Istanbul (Turkey) and has the participation of EUPHORIA NET SRL (Italy), the CHALLEDU center (Greece), the SUKRAN ULGEZEN MESLEKI institute (Turkey) and the CORPULUI house educational center (Romania), in addition to AIJU.
