International Collaboration via Webinar and Beyond: Two Tales of Research Partnership

The Association of Korean Women Scientists & Engineers (KWSE) and Korean-American Women in Science and Engineering (KWiSE) invite you to participate in the KWSE-KWiSE Joint Forum. The main purpose of the forum is to share the success story of webinar initiated at the last year’s UKC 2019 meeting, and to foster further collaboration and networking between US and Korea among women scientists and engineers. This year’s topic is “International collaboration via webinar and beyond: Two tales of research partnership” which shows successful cases of collaborative research between KWSE and KWiSE members and aims to further promote synergistic interactions. Technical talks are followed by a panel discussion, which will share experience and know-how how to promote collaborations and partnerships between women scientists and engineers.
