Again, TecnATox will be fully committed with the celebration of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science (February 11). Several of our researchers will be involved in a number of activities to promote full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls. These activities take place in the framework of the 100tifiques event, organized by the Catalan Foundation for Research and Innovation and the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology. At 11 am there will be simultaneous talks to give visibility to women in science.
Up to 60% of TecnATox staff members are women, being very well represented among scientists, technical staff and management team. We are proud to say that our Technological Center is co-directed by two women (Dr. Mònica Bulló and Dr. Montse Marquès). Furthermore, most of the SGR groups which compose TecnATox are also led by women.
