How many women are working at ICMAB?

Today we started to celebrate some of the events for the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. We had a seminar at 12 pm from Montse Ribell on Mileva Mariç, a great women eclipsed by a great man, Albert Einstein, and who left her studies in physics and maths for him. 

After the seminar, we took a group photo of the women at ICMAB, but also of the men... Why?

We wanted to visualize the quantity of women and men in our research center, since our centre is quite unique! Although still less than men, by the end of 2017, women represented a 42 % of the total staff. And this is what we wanted to illustrate in the group photo that illustrates this post: the women are standing at the left-side of the picture, and the men on the right-side. 

This percentage is quite similar in the different categories: 39 % women in permanent researchers, 40 % women in postdoctoral fellows, 39 % in PhD researchers, 46 % in technical personnel, 41 % in administration and maintenance staff, and yes, a 51 % in undergraduate students who do with us their final research project.

Moreover, of the total current projects at ICMAB (European, National, Regional, and private contracts), a 47 % are lead by women.

    After last year’s party being cancelled due to the COVID pandemic, we were stoked to be able to finally celebrate again! The 2021 ICMAB Party was celebrated after more than a year without live events due to the collective efforts to stop the spread of COVID. The party was not without changes, as it was celebrated entirely at ICMAB’s terrace to avoid concentrations of people inside. We celebrated on 16 July 2021 with many events, including the first CRYSTALMATCH contest, the awards ceremony for the FOTICMAB contest, the BEFORE&NOW photo activity, a tie dye workshop by Sara Ruiz, Nerea González and Lídia Ballell, a sketching workshop by Alejandro Santos, and the final of the Tennis Table tournament!

    The Institute was one of the four Materials Science CSIC Research Centers founded in 1986. This year is the 35th anniversary of the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona! It was put together in 1986 through the union of different research groups from different local institutions, all coming together in a singular building which was, on its own, a collaboration between the CSIC and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, who conceded some of its territory so the ICMAB could be built near the Centro Nacional de Microelectrónica (the Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona (IMB-CNM)).
