Watch the full video of the Australia-hosted Science Breakfast on women in science that took place this summer during #lnlm14. Our friends from the Australian Academy of Science have recently uploaded the whole event on their YouTube channel. The Science Breakfasts at the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings are discussion sessions hosted by our academic partners or sponsors. These sessions often cover specific scientific topics in detail and usually feature an interesting panel of participants who come from diverse backgrounds.
