EWM association

European Women in Mathematics is an international association of women working in the field of mathematics in Europe. EWM aims at:

  • encouraging women to study mathematics
  • supporting women in their careers
  • providing a meeting place for like-minded people
  • promoting scientific communication
  • cooperating with groups and organizations with similar goals
  • giving prominence and visibility to women mathematicians
  • spreading their vision of mathematics and science

Founded in 1986, EWM has several hundred members and coordinators in over 30 European countries. Every other year, EWM holds a general meeting and a summer school. A newsletter is published at least twice a year, EWM has a website, a facebook group and an e-mail network (person in charge Katrin Letschke from the standing committee).

Several videos have been produced by EWM, such as  Women in Mathematics Movie Part I, Part II and Part III.
