The exhibition " Women of Mathematics throughout Europe. A gallery of portraits" was opened in the Science Library at the University of Oslo on April 19, 2017.
The exhibition was officially opened by Head of the Department of Mathematics at the University of Oslo, Professor Geir Dahl. He gave a short speech about how the department works for a gender balance amongst staff and students, in particular he mentioned the new "Girls in Mathematics"-project. Moreover, he challenged the Science Library to make a similar exhibition with the women of the department, since he missed Professor Ragni Piene in this exhibition.
