#100tífiques: Training and Networking Meet-up

The Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST) and the Fundació Catalana per a la Recerca i la Innovació (FCRI), with the support of the ‘Departament d’Educació de la Generalitat de Catalunya’, are organising the 3rd edition of the #100tífiques programme, which will celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science on February 11th, 2021 by organising talks by female scientists to schools all over Catalonia. A total of 480 schools have requested talks for their students, and 420 female researchers have registered to speak – 123 from private entities and 297 from research centres and universtities – making this year’s edition the largest and most popular #100tífiques edition thus far.

The objective is to promote STEAM disciplines among 11-12 years old students (from the 6th year in primary school to the 1st year in secondary school) while also recognising the contributions of women researchers to the advancement of science.

To support the women scientists participating in this initiative and boost networking among them, BIST and FCRI organised the #100tífiquesTrobada de formació i networking (Training and Networking Meet-up) on January 21st. This online event was designed to celebrate and discuss the active contributions of women in science and how to give them visibility to promote female researchers as role models among boys and girls. The event included guest speakers, forum discussions, and helpful presentations for preparing the talks that will take place on February 11th. More than 300 participants attended the event.
