This past week was spent in Miami being a part of an exciting project called STEP UP for Women. The goal is for one out of every three high school physics teachers in the United States to recruit one female student into physics each year.

If this week has taught me anything, it’s that the term “open access” is not nearly as clear-cut as I thought.

I am writing this blog post from the DC airport. I am on my way to Miami. This week is sure to be a learning experience working at Florida International University on a grant project working to increase the number of women going into physics.

This week I got to step outside the world of U.S. research for a bit and see a different approach: research funding in the EU.
