Dica-lab congratulates its founding member  Dr. Gudrun Ziegler who receives the award “Inspiring Woman of the Year” in the category “Science, Research & Technology”

Dr. Gudrun Ziegler receives the award “Inspiring Woman of the Year” in the category “Science, Research & Technology” for her academic achievements.

In her speech she addressed the fact that few women (compared to men) work in the area of science and research, a domain which has traditionally been in the hands of men. She highlighted the issue of lost talent especially as young graduate women outperform their male peers. She pointed to the need for action in order to give qualified women the possibility to develop their research ideas within corresponding positions at academic institutions and universities. Dr. Ziegler thanked the initiative “Inspiring Woman of the Year” to voice the importance of women in science, research and technology specifically in Luxembourg’s young research setting.  More details are available on
