Careers: Virtual mobility can drive equality

At the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF2014) in June, scientists, policy-makers and the public discussed 'virtual mobility'.

A session on ‘New concepts of mobility to foster career development and gender balance in Europe’ was jointly organised by the European Science Foundation (ESF) and the mobile Women in Science Engineering and Technology (m-WiSET) working group of Marie Curie Fellows Association (MCFA). As part of the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF 2014) taking place in Copenhagen from 21-26 June 2014, this session was held at the Carlsberg museum on Sunday 22 June and was attended by around 100 participants.

The outcome of this session was published in the format of a Correspondence in Nature in July 2014 entitled “Virtual mobility can drive equality”.
