Lea Altnurme was added to AcademiaNet portal

The Estonian Research Council submitted the names of 65 Estonian researchers for inclusion in the AcademiaNet portal for successful women researchers. Among other researchers, Lea Altnurme, associate professor of sociology of religion at the School of Theology and Religious Studies, was added to the portal this year.

The portal aims to highlight successful women researchers and increase their international recognition. In addition, the portal is a good tool for researchers and research institutions to find experts, speakers, academics, and project partners.
