      • This year, a special focus on women in marine science

      • Several women involved in marine science and technology fields will be honoured during this 13th edition of the event. In this context, we would like to give our community players the opportunity to put some women in the spotlight.
        Here are some portraits of women who are widely involved in the maritime field.


        France Energies Marines, which conducts a session, wanted to highlight Emma Araignous, a research engineer in modelling tools and the ecosystem approach.

        ”There are a variety of tips I could provide, such as pick a job you are passionate about and set ambitious targets and always take a chance. However, the main advice is: be prepared to encounter barriers, people may ignore you, make assumptions about you, and not realise your expertise. But remember you do have expertise, and don't let impostor syndrome get the better of you. Your work and presence in these spaces is important now and for future generations, seek out those who do support you and keep them close to you. ”
