TOMSK, Feb 24 – RIA Tomsk. The editor-in-chief of the Tomsk Instagram-magazine Poster, a graduate of Tomsk State University (TSU) Ekaterina Vinogradova won a grant for a project that help "promote" women scientists; the grant competition was held as part of the Molotok media school, organized with the financial support of the European Union (EU), Vinogradova told RIA Tomsk.
According to her, Molotok media management school for women was organized within the framework of the EU-funded project to support women's initiatives We Act. 20 women from different regions of Russia were recruited to participate in the school. The final presentation of projects with the participation of EU experts and the distribution of grants took place in February 2021. Six girls, including the agency's interlocutor, received funds to implement their ideas.
"It is difficult now to name the amount of the grant, because I have requested 700 thousand (rubles), but now we will take a short break after a three-month training process and start recounting. Funds will be credited a little later, so we will need to think again about how much money will be allocated. It might be more, it might be less", - she said.

The project consists of three parts. The first involves the publication of a number of materials about women scientists of Tomsk in the Instagram-magazine Poster. The second is educational, it is dedicated to teaching scientists the basics of popular science performance, so that in the future they themselves can tell in a creative way about what they are doing. The third stage is a demonstration of the acquired skills with the support of the Tomsk Science Slam.
"(Grant funds) will be spent on the entire work of the editorial office, to pay for the process of educating women ... (Plus) these are all expenses associated with organizing an offline event (ScienceSlam)", - Vinogradova added.
Science Slam is a format for popularizing science that originated in Germany, during which young scientists present their research in a fascinating stand-up show in an informal setting.
