Connecting women in science

If you had to pick your favourite female researcher, who would it be? This has been the question on social media over the last week and for good reason, the 11 February was the International day for Women and Girls in Science. We are wrapping up our week-long celebration by introducing some of the women participating in COST-funded networks. We asked them about their experience starting out in the world of research, and what drove their careers forward.
