Betreff: European Platform of Women Scientists EPWS- Networking Outreach 

Dear Members of the Helsinki Group,

The European Platform of Women Scientists AISBL has been legally established in November 2005 and took up its work in its permanent premises in Brussels in February 2006. 

Designed as a democratic, inclusive, permanent, sustainable and politically active non-profit making association with its administrative seat in Brussels, the Platform will support the work of existing national, regional and international networks of women scientists in the natural and social sciences, in engineering and technology, the humanities, the arts and medical science and promote networking among women scientists in particular in Central Eastern Europe and the private sector.

The Platform will "network the networks" of women scientists and act as a structural link between women scientists and policymakers thus coordinating EU value-added support activities for women scientists. More specifically, the Platform will assist the preparations of FP7 to integrate research by, for and about women and promote the understanding and the inclusion of the gender issue in science.

In March 2006, the European Platform of Women Scientists EPWS was launched in Brussels in the presence of approximately 100 people from the European Institutions, permanent national representations to the EU, research councils, a variety of Brussels-based research oriented associations and representatives of the private sector.

After the success of this event, the Platform is now working in preparation of the Network Event of the 20th of October 2006. In light of this event, we are trying to obtain preliminary information on the existing networks of women in science, based on the 2003 DG Research Network Guide on Women Scientists, but also to extend our scope to any new networks which address the issues we are concerned with, and to enquire so as to their eventual participation to our Network Event. 

We would gladly appreciate if you could take some time to forward the attached preliminary questionnaire to any eventually interested Networks OR individuals and ask them to send it back addressed to Marianne Schwarz da Silva either via FAX (+32 (02) 234 37 59) or by e-mail (marianne.dasilva at epws.org) before the 2nd of May.

If you show an interest in joining the platform, a more detailed and in depth questionnaire will be sent at later stage. For the time being, we invite you to visit our website (http://www.epws.org <http://www.epws.org/> ) for our latest news.

We really appreciate your collaboration for all the information you can provide us will allow for a stimulating and interesting Network Event on the 20th of October. 

Best regards,

Dr. Marianne Schwarz da Silva
