Twenty-four Basque entities, among which is TecnunTwenty-four Basque entities, including the Emakumeak Zientzian project, have joined forces around the project through the signing of a new collaboration agreement, thus ratifying their commitment to the objectives of the initiative: to make visible the activity of women in science, to break with the typically male roles attributed to scientific-technical activities and to promote the choice of scientific careers among girls and adolescents. With these objectives in mind, the organizations are joining forces to organize a joint program of activities on the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, which is celebrated every year on February 11.
The 24 entities signing the agreement for the joint organization of the 7th.ª edition of Emakumeak Zientzian are an important representative sample of the science and technology fabric in the Basque Country: Centro de Física de Materiales (CFM CSIC-UPV/EHU), Achúcarro, CIC biomaGUNE, CIC nanoGUNE, University of Deusto, POLYMAT, Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3), Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM), Basque Center on Cognition, Brain and Language (BCBL), Biodonostia, Ceit, Cidetec, Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC), Elhuyar, Eureka! Zientzia Museoa, Fundación Biofísica Bizkaia (FBB), Ikerlan, Ingeniariak - Colegio Oficial de Ingenieros Industriales de Gipuzkoa, Parques Tecnológicos de Euskadi, Tecnalia, Tecnun-Escuela de Ingeniería, the Faculty of Computer Science, the School of Engineering of Gipuzkoa and the Faculty of Chemistry of the UPV/EHU.
This union is the result of an initiative -Emakumeak zientzian- of 'open doors' with an agglutinative vocation and which is clear that we are better by adding up. Thus, thanks largely to the involvement and dedication of dozens of professionals in the field of science and technology (researchers, university professors, engineers, etc.), the organizers are already working on the design of more than 50 activities so that the message that 'science is for girls' reaches and permeates the largest possible number of people. The complete program will be announced on January 18 and registration will be open at that time.
It should be noted that during the past year, the Emakumeak Zientzian initiative has won the 1st STEAM Euskadi award and the special mention for gender perspective in the category of Most Innovative STEAM Education Initiative promoted by other entities, awarded by the Department of Education of the Basque Government and Innobasque, as well as the recognition of the City Council of San Sebastian through Fomento San Sebastian during the IX edition of the Innovation Week.
