International Day of Women & Girls in Science 2023
Next February 11 is the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. This day wants to increase the visibility of the contributions, not properly recognized on many occasions, of women to science.
To celebrate this year's edition, the Institute of Cosmos Sciences of the UB invites you to attend the theatre play "Dialogue on the nature of the Universe, with the participation of eminent astronomers of the modernist era” on Monday, February 13. After the play, we will enjoy a round table to discuss topics such as the origins of cosmology, the participation of women and gender biases in science.
