AN INTERDISCIPLINARY THINK TANK FOR CREATIVE SCIENCE

The Mediterranean Institute for Life Sciences – MedILS, in Split, Croatia, is envisioned as an international centre of excellence for molecular biology. It is located in a park on one of the most beautiful stretches of the Croatian Adriatic coast.  MedILS offers a unique setting for high-quality workshops and conferences, with multiple fully equipped lecture rooms and halls.


Guests are accommodated in comfortable rooms with air-conditioning, private bathrooms, telephone, and high-speed internet. Three meals per day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) and coffee breaks with snacks can be organized on site.


Group sessions can also be held outside in the Institute’s park where benches, desks, and wireless Internet access are available. The location enables a number of possibilities for after-work leisure activities, including swimming at nearby beaches, running and hiking in the forests of Marjan state park, or playing basketball at the Institute’s private court. The city of Split with its picturesque old town offers plenty of restaurants, bars, and shops for social activities and can be reached in 20 minutes by foot, or in five minutes by bus or car.

“Croatia-Canada Women in Science” conference

“Croatia-Canada Women in Science” conference

Science is often considered a male-dominated field. In fact, women make up only around 30% of the workforce in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), and men vastly outnumber women majoring in most STEM fields in higher education. The gender gaps are particularly high in some of the fastest-growing and highest-paid jobs of the future, like life- and computer-sciences and engineering. 

The  "Croatia-Canada Women in Science” conference will include panel discussions from top Croatian and Canadian female life sciences professors and will highlight the role of science in building a sustainable future for all through science, technology, and innovation.

In addition, our objective is to connect scientists from Canada and Croatia, to develop meaningful and lasting research partnerships, to expose the private sector to science research excellence in Canada and Croatia as well as to identify challenges and opportunities for women in science in general.

The conference will be a full-day event both in Zagreb (September 12th, 2022) and Split (September 14th, 2022), where participants will have the opportunity to meet incredible female scientists from Croatia and Canada, and engage in meaningful discussion about what it means to be a woman in science.

Keynote speakers:
Six inspiring women scientists whose ground-breaking research is contributing to furthering science excellence in Croatia and Canada and advancing the understanding of science.
