Women and Science

- what do we do?

With the ‘Women and Science’ programme, FCRi wishes to give greater visibility to the strategic role of women scientists in Catalonia. We contribute to create and disseminate female role models in the fields of science and engineering and to promote good practice that lead to gender equality in the R&D sector.

We need more women to do science, to set up technology-based or science-based companies, to be part of innovation departments or to run research centres and academic chairs.

We want to break down gender stereotypes about intellectual capacity that come soon and that make girls discard themselves of STEM disciplines, a limitation that will become more pronounced with age because of the labour market and reconciling work and family life.

We encourage children, especially girls, to study science and engineering.
