International Day of Women and Girls in Science at IQCC 2022

This coming Friday (11th of February) is the International day of Women and Girls in Science. The IQCC has currently a rather favourable balance in gender ratio of staff members, both at the Master level (47%), PhD level (37%), postdocs (13%) and permanent researchers staff (29%). Notably, out of the 4 most recent permanent members, 2 are men and 2 are women, reinforcing one of the goals of the IQCC of striving to have a gender-balanced permanent staff in the near future.

In order to celebrate this day of the 11th of February, at 18h Dr. Sílvia Simon will give a lecture from 16-years old students at Estació Jove de Salt and on Saturday Dr. Sílvia Osuna will give a lecture at museum darder in Banyoles about “Disseny d’enzims d’interés industrial”. Furthermore, nine of our IQCC women (Dr. Anna Pla-Quintana, Dr. Sílvia Simon, Dr. Sílvia Osuna, Dr. Anna Roglans, MSc. Sílvia Escayola, MSc. Cristina Duran, MSc. Míriam Pujals, MSc. Najoua Choukairi, MSc. Laia Vicens) are participating in the International Day of Women and Girls in Sciencie initiative of UdG, where more than 50 researchers are being visible as #ExpertaUdG.

We look forward to seeing you there!
