Woman and science

11 February, International Day of Women and Girls in Science

The aim of this initiative is to raise awareness of the work done by women scientists in order to close the gender gap in science. Our centre has been participating in this initiative since its beginnings in 2016, with workshops, talks in schools, round tables and other varied and numerous activities.
