Laura Bassi Centres of Expertise
The impulse programme, which was unique throughout Europe, stood for research excellence; it focused its funding activities on equal opportunity in collaborative science and, furthermore, attempted to establish a contemporary research culture at the interface of science and industry.
In the scope of the impetus programme "Laura Bassi Centres of Expertise" w-fFORTE was funding research centres for applied basic research at the interface between science and economy that are managed by top-level female scientists. The programme was evaluated on an ongoing basis with the objective to detect essential factors for framing a modern research culture that appeals to both women and men alike.
