For European Women in Endocrinology (EUWIN)
ESE established European Women in Endocrinology (EUWIN), a peer-to-peer community to support women in endocrinology throughout Europe.
ESE's support for European Women in Endocrinology
The aim of the EUWIN community is to provide support, guidance and advice and to improve opportunities for women in European endocrinology and within ESE. We are delighted to be working with the group’s founders: Cynthia Andoniadou (UK), Wiebke Arlt (UK) and Jenny Visser (The Netherlands).
EUWIN’s primary aim is to enhance networking and collaboration between women in European endocrinology, importantly including mentoring and support for the career advancement of young female trainees and investigators, and those returning to work following a career break.
We celebrated the official EUWIN launch event at ECE 2022 which many delegates attended. We used the opportunity to gather ideas from delegates at the event as well as asking ESE Members’ opinions via a Membership Survey about what support women in endocrinology feel they need. This has helped us to develop a clear plan for moving forward.
One of the key benefits of ESE membership is the opportunity to be part of a community of like-minded individuals you can connect with, and access to information and resources tailored to your role and career stage.

We are currently focussing on the following activities. If you have ideas for EUWIN please email EUWIN.
We have run a EUWIN reception event at ECE for the last two years, initially launching EUWIN in 2022 in Milan, followed by an Update event at ECE 2023 in Istanbul. We were thrilled that this was attended by around 100 delegates who enjoyed networking and hearing from the EUWIN founders. Another EUWIN session will take place at ECE 2024 in Stockholm. More information will be available soon.
We ran two ESE Talks... EUWIN led events in 2023, providing advice on applying for Committees and Awards. We are aiming for gender equality in both of these areas to achieve equal representation on all ESE Committees, as well as improve the balance of nominations for awards. If you missed either of these events, you can catch up on the recordings on demand - these events provide some excellent advice; ESE Talks... Committees and ESE Talks... Demystifying Awards.
The EUWIN group is actively encouraging women to self-nominate for ESE Awards, Grants and positions on Committees and Boards – within medical societies and associations (not just within ESE). You can watch recordings from the two recent ESE Talks... EUWIN led events on Committees and Awards which provide some excellent advice. The ESE Awards are now open for nominations.
The EYES Exchange Programmes (Observership) Grants provide excellent learning opportunities for European early career investigators and applications are now open.
ESE recognises the challenges faced by scientists in obtaining research funding from major European research funding schemes and has developed the ESE-SEEDER-EU programme to help our members by supporting them during the application and writing process.
If you would like further information on grant proposal writing, you may find it useful to watch this video recording from a previous ESE Talks... session we ran on Practical Skills for Researchers, which was one of a three-part series.
To support women in endocrinology, we provide and endorse courses, like the ESE.. Talks webinars led by EUWIN which focus on different topics to help women with their career progression. We also offer a dedicated EUWIN session at the European Congress of Endocrinology (ECE) which provides opportunities for networking.
Explore the events and webinars which ESE offers.
We provide a broad range of training, research and meeting grants to support ESE Members at all stages of their career. For example, grants are available to help cover the cost of attending the European Congress of Endocrinology (ECE), which takes place in Stockholm in May 2024.
See details of available grant opportunities.
The prestigious ESE Awards programme recognises the success of our members and helps drive innovation and progression across all fields of endocrinology. We encourge women to self-nominate or nominate other women for awards.
