CHEER research project, 'Internationally Mobile Female Scholars', officially ended in the summer of this year having been running since October 2020.

This Humboldt Foundation-funded project was led by Professor Louise Morley and supported by recently graduated doctoral researcher, Yasser Kosbar, who worked with GESIS in Köln, Germany on the project aimed at attracting more excellent women scientists to the Humboldt Network.

Dossiers for all six countries included in the project are now complete and can be seen on the Research projects web page.
