Networking Group for female scientific staff TU/e

Women in Science - Eindhoven (WISE) Network

WISE network is a network for female scientific staff at TU/e. Supported by the University Board, the network was founded in March 2007. 

About us

The Women in Science Eindhoven (WISE)-Network is for all female TU/e scientists, from Postdocs,  EngD-,  PhD candidates to full professor and for research -support staff.

Who are we?
We are an active network run by women working at TU/e who are committed to addressing the needs of our membership. Our Board of female scientists represents all departments of the University and mirrors TU/e’s international profile with Board members form around the world.

Curious about what we can offer you?
We are committed to our members’ personal development and learning and organize various activities and workshops for our members throughout the academic year, as well as an Annual Event that is open to all the University staff and our partner organizations. We advocate and provide advice, e.g. to the Executive Board and the Diversity Committee, on the basis of our members’ experiences. We also offer opportunities for networking with members across the whole of TU/e who can support and encourage each other as female scientists in our career development and in finding a healthy life/work balance.

If you have ideas for new WISE-Network activities please let us know by sending an e-mail to our secretariat:

We are looking forward to meeting you at one of our upcoming events.
