This public outreach platform aims to promote women scientists and to raise their profile in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) and the event has been running since 2011 with great succes.

Speakers at the event will represent a range of disciplines, including physics, mathematics, geography, biology,  medicine and bioscience. Dr Alla Silkina won a spot to this event and will introduce the public to the Nature’s secrets of algae for a healthy life: cosmetic, pharma, food and feed applications”
