Women in STEM
There are still too few women in science and technology, particularily in the ELLIIT core topics such as information technology, mobile communications and software engineering. To promote ICT and related topics as attractive career possibilities for young female students and scientists, ELLIIT has a dedicated gender program.
During summer 2021, ELLIIT will record an ambitious seminar series on societal challenges from an ICT perspective. All four ELLIIT campuses will be involved, and the production stars a well-known Swedish research communicator and comedian. Topics are based on visions from the 2030 Technology Foresight.
The annual STEM-days in Lund are usually attended by more than 6000 high school students and their teachers. Local ELLIIT researchers regularily participate to give lectures such as “6G? Vi har ju inte ens fått 5G” (Fredrik Tufvesson), “Att knäcka ett lösenord” (Martin Hell), “Sakernas internet: en uppkopplad värld” (Emma Fitzgerald) and many more.
