La Vanguardia and Fundació Catalunya La Pedrera invite readers to vote for a woman-led research project to win the 2022 La Vanguardia Science Award. Dr. Mónica Lira Cantu, leader of the Nanostructured Materials for Photovoltaic Energy group at the BIST centre ICN2 is among this year’s eight contestants.
Eight scientific projects in the fields of biomedicine, nanotechnology, palaeoanthropology, and environmental sciences have been selected by an interdisciplinary scientific committee as candidates for the 2022 La Vanguardia Science Award, this year in its eleventh edition. Dr. Mónica Lira Cantu, leader of the ICN2 Nanostructured Materials for Photovoltaic Energy, with her work to develop more efficient solar panels, has been selected to be among the eight contestants.
The award is based on popular vote by readers, who will be able to choose the research they consider most relevant out of the eight. It is not necessary to have a background in science to vote; it is enough to be curious and want to express an opinion. Voting will be open until Monday February 28 at midnight. Vote here.
