International Spring Gathering 2024

From Research to Leadership: Empowering Scientific Careers at the International Spring Gathering 2024

The third edition of the Female Science Talents International Spring Gathering will take place on 22-24 May 2024 in Berlin. For the first time of the year, we are gathering our 20 Intensive Track Champions 2024 for a thrilling week filled with events, workshops, and networking activities alongside female leaders, role models, partners and Female Science Talents alumni.

With a special emphasis on leadership, the event will feature special guests while providing space for community-building and peer-learning. The first day, Wednesday 22 May, will be hosted in the office space of Brunswick, an advisory firm at the centre of Berlin, where attendees will network and take part in a taylored workshop on public engagement in science hosted by Mhairi Stewart from the Berlin School of Public Engagement (private event). The day will end with a gathering with Female Science Talents alumni and mentors at the Falling Walls Foundation office.

On Thursday 23 May, we will gather our guests and partners at Table.Media and explore the critical topic of “Ethical Leadership and Decision-Making”, alongside with networking activities. The afternoon will feature an interview with Mike Devoy, Chief Medical Officer & Head Medical Affairs & Pharmacovigilance at Bayer AG, followed by an interactive workshop on ethical leadership co-hosted with the Bayer Foundation. Following this, Max Vögler, Vice President for Global Strategic Networks – DACH at Elsevier, will provide key insights on Elsevier’s latest report on gender in research.

We will close the International Spring Gathering with a science and cultural event in Berlin on Friday 24 May.

We thank all of our participants, speakers and partners for their invaluable support.
