Working group Women in Physics
Following the instructions of the EPS, the group Woman in Physics was founded on June 2, 2003. In the background
of this initiative lies the fact that the number of woman in physics is generally small (under 15%) in
all countries, and such groups were formed to the end of finding ways to increase their participation in activities
related to physics.
The members of the Group are:
associate prof. dr. Vernesa Smolčić, Physics Department, Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb
assistant prof. dr. Dijana Dominis Prester, The School of Medicine, University of Rijeka
dr. Ana Babić, Rudjer Boskovic Institute, Zagreb
