International Day of Women and Girls in Science

To meet the challenges of the 21st century, we must rely on science and engage everyone, including women and girls, who play a key role in the scientific and technological communities. Based on UNESCO’s efforts to mobilize the global community to engage women and girls in science, we announce the call for presentations (at the International Sopot Youth Conference “Where the world is heading”) that diagnose the current situation of women and girls in science and look for or present solutions that increase their presence in science as researchers.

Online submissions will be available in March 2021
