11 February 2021

At present only 30% of researchers worldwide are women, according to data from UNESCO. In order to draw more attention to women and girls in science, International Day of Women and Girls in Science is celebrated every year on 11 February. We would like to introduce 4 of our female scientists to you, with the goal of inspiring more women and girls to follow in their footsteps.
