This database was set up to address the

issue of women under-representation at leadership positions in academia and the sciences. By providing numerous profiles of excellent women academics from every discipline, AcademiaNet makes them more visible and more easily accessible. This in turn will make it easier to fill leadership positions and scientific bodies with women academics. For more info see the “No more excuses” brochure.
