Open call for L'Oreál-UNESCO "For Women in Science" 2020 awards

In its 15th edition, the L'Oréal-UNESCO "For Women in Science" awards five prizes of 15,000 euros each to support research projects carried out by Spanish women scientists in the area of Physical Sciences, Mathematics and/or Computer and Information Sciences. The deadline for application will remain open until 13 September 2020. These should be done through the official website "For Women in Science".

Jun 18, 2020

The L'Oréal-UNESCO '"For Women in Science" programme opened on 15 June 2020 a new call to recognise young Spanish women scientists for their work as researchers. These awards aim to give visibility to the work of women scientists and encourage vocations for research among the youngest.

Five prizes valued with 15,000 euros each will be awarded to the best projects to be developed by researchers in our country, in the area of Physical Sciences, Mathematics and/or Computer and Information Sciences, during the year 2021, which are presented by their research centres.

Among the requirements for its concession (see the terms and conditions in this link), the scientific quality of the research project and its contribution to science and society, as well as the trajectory and merits of the researcher who develops it, will be taken into account. The work of the centre in disseminating research carried out by women will also be appreciated, as will the support for scientific careers among young women.

The deadline for applications will remain open until 13 September 2020. These should be done through the website "For Women In Science"  (accessing Spain Young Talents Program).

The projects will be analysed by a technical evaluation commission and then by a jury, which will determine the five prizes to be announced in the last quarter of the year.

Throughout the fifteen-year history of the research awards in Spain, the programme has developed numerous initiatives and supported 67 Spanish scientists with more than one million euros, in addition to providing them with great visibility and recognition in society.

From the ICMAB, Anna Laromaine was awarded with this award in 2016, and Mariona Coll was awarded in 2017. Will you be the next one?

  • The 2021 ICMAB Summer Party celebrates the Institute’s 35 years!

    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)).
