The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MAECI) is willing to establish the “Science, She Says!” Award to recognize an outstanding junior female scientist who has remarkably contributed to the advancement of science and technology, while performing her research in one of the following five regions:
I) Africa and the Middle East;
II) Asia and the Pacific;
IV) Central and South America and the Caribbean;
V) North America.
One candidate will be selected for each of the five regions, the determining factor being the place of work for at least the last 4 years. The first edition of the Award bestowed will take place during the Italian Scientific Attachés Conference, to be held in Padua on October 2022. All fields of science and technology will be considered. The award will consist of an engraved medal and a diploma from the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.
