Portal gathers prominent female researchers

Very prominent female researchers and academics can be selected to the AcademiaNet portal, but only after being nominated by one of the AcademiaNet's partner organizations. A number of female KI researchers have been selected.

Agneta Ståhle, Professor in Physiotherapy, was nominated by the Swedish Research Council and selected during the late summer this year.

“It is a tremendous honor to be nominated for and a part of this forum of female world-leading researchers," says Professor Ståhle, active at Karolinska Institutet's Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society.

The purpose of the portal is to gather and make available prominent female researchers and academics, active within different disciplines. The idea is that this will make it easier to appoint leadership positions with female representatives, both in scientific organizations and other organizations. Additional target groups for the portal include journalists and conference organizers looking for experts.

In order to be elected and to have a profile on the portal's website, the candidate must have outstanding academic qualifications, independent leadership activities, and very good academic credentials.
