Location: Bank of Ireland Workbench, Trinity College Dublin

Date: 8 Mar

To mark International Women’s Day on Friday 8th March 2019, the ADAPT Centre will run a talk and discussion on the impact of gender on research.  This year’s campaign, #balanceforbetter, calls for a more gender-balanced world.

The ADAPT Centre is recognised globally for the impact it has on developing ground breaking technologies that are advancing the way we interact with systems, machines and each other.  But does technological innovation affect all groups and individuals equally?  Can technology affect gender equity? And does gender impact how technologies are developed?

The event will aim to explore the impact of gender in research and will provide an opportunity for discussion and networking.
