Every girl deserves
We work to support the advancement of women and girls in the fields of science and technology.
Is there anything wrong with dreaming big?
Definitely not. Yet, girls rarely dream of being computer scientists, physicists, or space researchers.
This is what NaTE can help with. The world is full of captivating stories of women, and it is our job to share these stories with the next generation.
The careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) are unbelievably beautiful and exciting, and we would like to show young girls all the possibilities inherent in these careers.

The Nature Award-winning Association of Hungarian Women in Science (NaTE) was established in 2008 by only 10 female researchers. In a unique way in Hungary, we started or work with the aim of ensuring that the achievements of both sexes are equally recognized in the field of science and technology. We imagine a world where only true professional competence matters and acknowledgement is not gender-specific.
Initially, we provided a forum for experienced female professionals who had already been working in a field of science, then we gradually started to reach out to young people, as well. This is how Girls’ Day came into being in 2012, followed by a number of other initiatives, such as the Shadowing programs, the SCIndicator competition and the Smartiz program.
We have been working for more than ten years to support women and girls in their careers in science and technology. We had a dreamlike growth. With never-ending enthusiasm, joy and, of course, professionalism, we have helped thousands of young people and adults so far.
We want to live in a world that recognizes and integrates the knowledge of both sexes equally in the processes of social and technological innovation.

We want to live in a world…
- In which it is obvious to all that women and men have equally valuable skills.
- Where women have the opportunity to complete challenging and interesting tasks. to achieve professional fulfilment and work-life balance.
- Where women can be assured that their success depends only on their abilities, knowledge, ideas and diligence.
- In which young girls experience at school how boundless our world is, and, instead of trying to please other people, they strive to find their own identity.
- In which employers take upon themselves to broaden the perspectives for young people.
- Where the international press praises loudly Hungary’s achievements in the fields of science and innovation.
Who We Are?
Every girl deserves to participate in shaping and improving the world around us.
NaTE is working to provide girls with tools and opportunities which enable them to do so.
Our definite goal is that young people move boldly and confidently towards STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
We help them along this way by presenting female role models, carrying out community building activities, and offering mentoring as well as special sessions.
We consider it important that when selecting the field they want to pursue in their further studies, they make decisions based on their own experiences and inclinations, instead of trying to meet social or family expectations.
Our activities range from research work to creative event organization and science communication, which would not be achievable without our partners.
