IVW Female Recruting Day on 12 April 2023


At the first "Female Recruting Day" of the IVW on 12 April 2023, 9 female Master's students or graduates from different universities informed themselves about the possibilities of working as a scientist at the IVW in the future. After an introduction to the IVW, the programme began with specialist presentations on fibre composite structures that can change their shape at the touch of a button, on the use of composites for implants and orthoses, and on so-called “Biocomposites” that can be made from renewable raw materials, and continued with a tour of the laboratory. During a walk through the beautiful garden show in Kaiserslautern and also during the joint dinner, there were then many opportunities for mutual exchange to find out about working conditions, development opportunities, dissertation work, joint activities also outside the working world as well as about the social environment. The IVW would like to further increase the proportion of women in its scientific staff and is very much looking forward to a larger number of female applicants for future job advertisements.
