Women. Innovation.Technology Network
The Women.Innovation.Technology Network (F.I.T) Baden-Württemberg has been in existence since February 2001. It is funded by the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts and is based at Furtwangen University on the Schwenningen Campus.
The goals of the F.I.T Network:
- to support the careers of prospective women computer scientists, engineers and natural scientists
- to support female computer science and engineering students through additional workshops in their area of expertise
Through our various activities, we increase the number of women working in the areas of natural and engineering sciences.
