WIMER - Women in Metrology and Energy Research

Welcome to the website for Women in Metrology and Energy Research! Here, you'll find information and resources related to the contributions and advancements made by women in the fields of metrology and energy research. In both fields, women have played a vital role and made significant contributions. However, they are still underrepresented. 

On this website, you'll find speakers who are notable women in metrology and energy research, as well as resources for women interested in pursuing careers in these fields. You'll also find information on upcoming events, conferences, and workshops related to metrology and energy research, as well as opportunities for networking and collaboration.

Finally, we hope this website will serve as a way to raise awareness and promote diversity and inclusion in these fields. 

Opportunities & External Events

SE²A International Female Programme - Research Internships

The international female research internship program is an initiative aimed at increasing the number of female researchers in the research cluster and within the German scientific community. It is open to female academics from abroad at the very beginning of their career after graduation with a master’s degree who are interested in experiencing first-hand the research environment at one of the institutions of the SE²A cluster. Good command of either English or German is required.
Participants will work for six months on a research project defined by the hosting institute. Pay is based on half-time employment on a TVL E13 position (approx. 1200 € per month after deductions).
Beside the scientific work, the program also offers the participants the opportunity to partake in intensive German language courses. After completing the research internship, successful participants are expected to have accumulated sufficient research experience and German language skills to become eligible as doctoral researchers within the SE²A cluster.


  • Cover Letter (Motivation)
  • Curriculum Vitae including complete address, phone number, email address, educational background, language skills, and work experience

dib - Jahrestagung 2023 - Regionalgruppe Braunschweig

dib (deutscher ingenieurinnenbund, the German Association of Women Engineers) is a non-profit organisation with a current membership of approximately 400.

dib is an association of and for women that work in engineering or study engineering. dib is dedicated to achieving equal opportunities for women in education and employment.

dib was founded in 1986 by a group of women engineers and women engineering students who felt that existing associations and groups were not meeting their needs. dib was created to represent women in engineering and science by offering an alternative to those associations that included female university graduates from a wide variety of disciplines and those engineering-focused groups that were largely male-dominated.

dib participates in dialogues on equality legislation and policies at the national and international level. Furthermore, dib provides the opportunity to exchange experiences with women in similar situations.
