Our mission is to inspire and empower talented women in science with a strong research background to take their next career step. We support early-career talents in exploring new pathways toward leadership and enhance the global recognition of exceptional talents, while furthering the overarching promotion of women in science.

With the Intensive Track, we offer a year-long support programme for 20 exceptionally talented women across all scientific disciplines, with the aim of guiding them toward achieving significant career breakthroughs. Through online events, mentoring opportunities, and participation in high-level events in Berlin, we support them in building an international network and increasing their global recognition. Through a series of skill-enhancement workshops, we boost their career vision and facilitate their exploration of related fields.

Throughout the year, we also foster an environment for the 20 Champions to engage with one another, promoting peer exchange, community building and mutual support among them. We invite them to become an active part of the Female Science Talents community and connect with peers across the Falling Walls programmes and partner networks. We ensure visibility for their work through the communication channels of Female Science Talents and Falling Walls.

The call of applications for the Intensive Track 2025 will open again in November 2024.
