Nordic Network of Women in Physics (NorWiP)
Nordic Network of Women in Physics (NorWiP) consists of a collaboration between female physicists in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden - with representation also from Russia.
NorWiP serves as an umbrella organisation for the national networks of women in physics in the Nordic countries:
- Netværk for Kvinder i Fysik in Denmark
- Network of Women in Physics in Finland
- Nettverk for Kvinner i Fysik in Norway
- Women in Physics in Sweden
The network aims to:
- train, encourage and retain female Ph.D. students and post.docs.
- allow students and young researches to find female advisors, mentors and role models in their field
- allow female physicists to exchange information and experiences and to establish contacts to other female physicists in the Nordic countries
- increase the visibility of nordic female physicists and to maintain an open database of women researchers in physics in the Nordic countries
- identify gender barriers in the career paths of women in physics and to work toward removing such barriers
- facilitate international networking by developing contacts with women in physics organisations around the world
