Day 1: In Riga for the entire week to attend the annual meeting and working group meetings of a COST Action named COLOSSAL in which I participate as one of the two French representatives in the Management Committee, and as the STSM coordinator.
COST is a networking tool to foster new collaborations and exchange ideas between European scientists. We work on the topic of fine particle chemical composition with near real-time instrumentation to better identify aerosol sources.
I mentioned STSM above. These are short missions funded by the Action. You can hear Petra Pokorna's presentation of hers when she visited our lab for a month last March in this video.
Science-A-Thon is a five-day celebration of science, engineering, technology, and math (STEM!), science professionals, science teachers, science journalists, and anyone else who uses science in their day – from the lab to the field, from learning to teaching, from routine tasks to major discoveries! This year's event will take place October 14-18, 2019.
Science-A-Thon will raise money for three amazing partner charities that support women’s advancement in STEM: the Earth Science Women's Network (ESWN), Girls Who Code, and the Society of Women Engineers! The goal of Science-A-Thon is to increase visibility of scientists and the important work they do for the public. We encourage you to come along for a #dayofscience or donate to our page to pave the way for current and future generations of women scientists!
