The Elise Richter Network is an exchange platform for excellent female researchers in Austria. It connects past, present and future Elise Richter awardees and aims to support their careers in academia and beyond. In our activities, we advocate for gender equality and battle systemic deficits of equal career opportunities in Austrian academia. This page highlights scientific achievements and critical perspectives of the group, portrays the scholars behind the research and enables contact and networking.
