Smurfit Kappa has formally confirmed the Smurfit Kappa Newman Fellowship – Women in STEM, a philanthropic partnership with University College Dublin (UCD).
This will be a long-term international piece of research funded by Smurfit Kappa investigating the experiences of females working in science and engineering roles.
The results will provide an opportunity to challenge how women are viewed in engineering and science-based roles as a career, and to improve the working experiences of women in engineering and industrial type sectors.
The UCD Newman Fellowship Program, established in 1989, provides financial support for a period of two years, allowing the fellow the freedom to pursue their particular area of research. Projects range across all academic areas and almost 250 fellowships have been awarded since the program’s inception.
