6 March 2020, 5:45 pm – Schrödinger Theatre, Trinity College Dublin.

On the occasion of the International Day for Women’s Rights, the French Embassy in partnership with Trinity College Dublin School of Physics, the German Embassy and the Goethe-Institut, invites you to engage, learn and exchange about what it means to be women in science, from Marie Curie to today.

More than a century after her two Nobel prizes, Marie Curie is probably still the most famous woman scientist today. But what was is like to be a woman in science at the dawn of the 20th century and what has changed today?

On Friday 6 March at 5.45pm at Trinity College Dublin, we present the Irish Premiere screening of the Franco-German-Polish film “Marie Curie – The Courage of Knowledge” by Marie Noëlle.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion featuring:

  • Louise Bradley – School of Physics, Trinity (MC)
  • Cliona O’Farrelly – Trinity BioScience Institute
  • Joanne Dolan – Teen Turn, Irish association providing teen girls the opportunity to gain hands-on technology experience
  • Amélie Rouger –  French laureate of a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Career-FIT Fellow, Food Safety Department, Teagasc

The discussion will continue in the Fitzgerald Library accompanied by German and French refreshments.
