Our purpose is to inspire and empower talented women in science who have a strong background in research to take the next step in their career. We help early-career talents to pursue flexible career paths and support them in building an international network. The Female Science Talents programme seeks to advance the overall promotion of women in science while also highlighting and supporting exceptional talents.

With the Intensive Track, we provide close support to 20 exceptionally talented women in science from all disciplines, aiming to guide them toward achieving a significant career breakthrough within one year. The selected champions take part in two high-level landmark conferences in Berlin, with the opportunity to meet outstanding women leaders and role models from academia, politics and business. They take part in a series of online skill-enhancement workshops on topics relevant to their career, and to facilitate their exploration of other fields.

Through regular meetings, we foster an environment for the 20 champions to expand their network, promoting peer learning, community building, and mutual support among them. We invite them to become an active part of the Female Science Talents community and exchange with peers across the Falling Walls programmes. We also offer them visibility via the Female Science Talents and Falling Walls communications channels.
