International Women’s Day with Dr Kamila Markram
This event is organised by the American International Club. CWF members can register at members’ price.
We urgently need new solutions for clean energy, sustainable development and healthy living.
In an industry where women are severely underrepresented, Kamila is leading a scientific community of more than 500,000 of the world’s top academics to solve these critical challenges. She will outline the role of the academic publisher in the innovation cycle and how open science, together with artificial intelligence, can result in exponential innovation – and solve any challenge the human race may face.
