The ScienzaSocietàScienza Association promotes activities aimed at the dissemination of scientific culture and considers the relationship between women and science one of the important issues to be pursued. Even today, in fact, gender equality, despite the goals achieved in recent years at local, national and international level, even within the scientific community, remains strongly influenced by stereotypes and women continue to be marginalized in research, science publications , and in various other fields.
In this context, the Association announces the fourth edition of the “Woman of Science” Award in Sardinia for the year 2022, which intends to offer recognition to female figures who have contributed to giving prestige and advances to Sardinia in the scientific field. The recognition is aimed at women born or working in Sardinia or for Sardinia, and who have carried out activities in the field of scientific research, science teaching, dissemination of scientific culture, including through the use of the media.
The award is organized in collaboration with the Universities of Cagliari and Sassari, INAF and the Astronomical Observatory of Cagliari, the Cagliari section of INFN, the Cagliari branch of the CNR Institute of Neuroscience, the Department of Equal Opportunities of the Municipality of Cagliari and GIULIA Sardinia.
As part of the Award, the Department of Equal Opportunities of the Municipality of Cagliari offers the Young Woman of Science Award aimed at candidates native of Cagliari participating in the Award.
