It became quite obvious for INWES European members, that it is time that European Women Engineers and Scientists voices were raised to call for European countries and concretize true equality results and achieve success as well in Europe.
In order to help out and contribute more efficiently, we have decided to organize a preparatory meeting with the objective of discussing and deciding appropriate strategies at regional and sub-regional level. The first preparatory meeting was held in Geneva, Switzerland, on 18-19 September, 2015 with a preliminary agenda. The meeting gathered 11 participants from 6 European Countries (France, Germany, Poland, Switzerland, U.K.).
At 2015 INWES board meeting in Uganda, the establishment of European Network was approved and the first General Assembly would be ready in November, 2016, during 2016 INWES Regional Conference to be held in Germany.
