Description of the tool

For the project Frauenwege – Womens’ Paths we address female researchers at the Medical University of Vienna who distinguish themselves through their special achievements and/or special commitment. We talk to women professors and women who lead an organizational unit, as well as to those who have rendered outstanding services through their work in various committees. We also focus on women who have won scholarships, awards or accolades for their achievements in research or teaching. Interviews focused at careers, ups and downs, help received along the way and personal recommendations are conducted with the women. They are then published on the website, featuring the interviewee’s name and pictures.
