In September 2022 Linda presented our research at the FEMeeting conference in Portugal. As a highly international community, the program of FEMeeting 2022 “FEMeeting: Women in Art, Science and Technology” included 90 presentations by 95 speakers from 23 countries as well as other activities to encourage communication among its participants. Taking place from 12 to 17 September 2022, the third conference has kicked off in Lisbon, at the Institute of Molecular Medicine, and continued its program in the city of Évora, hosted in the Convento de São Bento de Castris and the Fundação Eugénio de Almeida.
The event was fantastic, with many amazing women presenting research in the arts, science and technology. A secondary purpose of attending this 6-day event was to begin to look for new research partners as we begin the design of stage two of our research project. Our work was extremely well received, and our call out for potential partners has led to an amazing set of collaborators for us to work with, from curators to international science organisations and galleries. We are so grateful to the women organising these events every year and look forward to bringing stage 2 to the next FEMeetings wherever they are in the world.
