An environment with gender equality, diversity and fascinating research
TIME: 23 April 2019 from 13:00 to 16:00
PLACE: IKDC, Stora hörsalen
MODERATOR: Andrea Pettersson
The Lise Meitner professorships at LTH are an initiative started in 1999 that exemplifies our efforts to ensure that LTH attracts the best talents and is a place of gender equality and diversity.
On 23 April, LTH will hold its second Lise Meitner Day at the faculty, partly to highlight the fascinating research of the Lise Meitner professors and partly to discuss how LTH can become an environment that promotes both creativity and high quality in its work.
The first part of the event will consist of flash lectures by the Lise Meitner professors – quick insights into their research for the curious:
- Liesbet van der Perre, Visiting professor at the department of Electrical and Information Technology: “When the things started talking ... and thinking? An Internet-of-Things story”
- Karin Östergren, Adjunct professor at the department of Food Technology: “Towards a sustainable food chain – the significance of the details and the importance of the big picture”
- AnnaLisa Osvalder, Visiting professor at the division of Ergonomics and Aerosol Technology: “User-adapted design for all ages – Comfort and safety for children and older adults in cars”
- Misse Wester, Visiting Professor at the division of Risk Management and Societal Safety: “Climate, Disasters and Gendered roles”
Then we will all gather for a panel discussion on the LTH culture we want to create for our researchers:
- How do we support one another in a context in which competition is in many ways a basic condition?
- How do we open up to diversity in heterogeneous environments – and what do we stand to gain?
- What agreement applies to LTH employees concerning the environment that we create together?
