The Prof. Giulia Grancini of the Department of Chemistry, University of Pavia, head of the PVsquared2 team and Principal Investigator of the ERC Starting Grant HYNANO project, has been invited by the UN to speak at the “6th International Day of Women and Girls in Science”, organized by the Royal Academy of Science International Trust (RASIT).
The International Day of Women and Girls in Science, celebrated on 11 February, is implemented by UNESCO and UN-Women in collaboration institutions and civil society partners that aim to promote women and girls in science. This Day is an opportunity to promote full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls. Gender equality is a global priority for UNESCO, and the support of young girls, their education and their full ability to make their ideas heard are levers for development and peace.
Tackling some of the greatest challenges of the Agenda for Sustainable Development — from improving health to combating climate change — will rely on harnessing all talent. That means getting more women working in these fields. Diversity in research expands the pool of talented researchers, bringing in fresh perspectives, talent and creativity. This Day is a reminder that women and girls play a critical role in science and technology communities and that their participation should be strengthened.
