On July 22, 2019, Johanna Schmidt from the Visual Analytics research group was part of the young talent promotion initiative “International Summer Academy in Engineering for Women”. At the "Science Café", Johanna Schmidt not only reported on her work as a researcher at VRVis, but also gave the girls tips for their studies and career entry. She also talked on the possibility of doing an internship at VRVis, as VRVis offers these internships not only to students, but also to interested pupils.
The "International Summer Academy in Engineering for Women" took place from 9 to 24 July 2019 and was organized for the 6th time by the FH Upper Austria. Here, young and talented women (high school students, female students or university graduates) get the unique opportunity to experience top-class and challenging student projects at university level and to come into contact with female researchers.
