2022/01/26 Elhuyar Zientzia Iturria: Elhuyar aldizkaria


The Women in Science programme will be held from 11 to 18 February. Various activities have been proposed, both face-to-face and online, to bring the message "science is the thing of girls" closer to as many people as possible and to underline the importance of achieving equal access and professional development in the field of science and technology.

In 2016, the United Nations General Assembly decided to designate 11 February as International Day of Women and Girls in Science. And to celebrate this day, 17 entities, including Elhuyar Zientzia, have joined this initiative worldwide and will present a comprehensive programme of activities aimed at all audiences.
