February 11th marks the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. For this reason, the elastomers Group has decided to record our female scientists answering some questions related to their professional careers. What does it mean to be a scientist? Or what message would you leave for girls who are considering a career in science?
This video aims to raise awareness of the work of our fellow scientists and to motivate future generations to follow in their footsteps. In the Elastomers Group there are women scientists at different stages of their scientific careers: from master’s students to technical specialists in advanced materials characterization techniques. Therefore, each one’s perspective is unique and together they provide a wide range of opinions and experiences. The evolution of the context of women in the world of science over the years has varied greatly, something that can be observed by listening to the testimonies of the scientists.
