We are delighted to invite you to join us around the table at the ECC 2021 Women in Control event.  This is a great opportunity to meet three inspiring academic leaders, ask questions and mingle with each other during the round the (virtual) table discussions in spatial chat.

We strongly encourage all of you to join us to (re-)connect with the growing group of female researchers in control to talk about research, career issues and perspectives for a diverse academic society environment.
