Meeting theme:


This year, KiF has shown its new colors


Our organisation wants to facilitate the many different needs and interests of its members. We strive to move out of the shadows of a male-dominated environment, but most of all, out of our own shadows.


We women in physics need to be more active, take charge and responsibility for our careers and be more visible. Therefore, the focus point of this year's meeting will be career development, perspectives and strategies and the visibility of female researchers and their work.


Kvinder i Fysik, as an organisation, aims to provide the platform to enable this empowerment and give you the chance to take action: so join us and get involved!!
