All broadcasts can be viewed online afterwards via NPO Start.

Sisters in Science
The aim of the Sisters is Science is “to provide a peek into the life of a PhD student or junior lecturer at the UvA, and, more importantly, to overcome stereotypes and inspire others”. Previously, Mimi den Uijl said about the initiative: “Among the three of us we noticed that when we were younger, we never knew what a being a scientist actually meant. Let alone that he or she would look anything like us. With Sisters in Science we hope to reach anyone interested in what the ‘science world’ is all about, to inspire young people to pursue a career in science and to connect with our fellow scientists on the platform.”

On 6 september the Sisters in Science will also spreak during the official University of Amsterdam Opening of the Academic Year.
