Project: 01FP1263

SIGNIFICANT DETAILS is a series of interviews with women in science. About their career, their daily work, their experiences with science.

All interviews will start from a specific object, a “significant detail” from the women’s scientific life. They can be scientific objects or something completely different that is related to science only by the women’s experience. From there, each conversation takes its individual course.

Significant Details is a project by Leuphana University Lüneburg. It is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Robert Bosch Foundation. Media partner is Spektrum der Wissenschaft.

Some more background for the project is here.
