Fifteen talented young women scientists, from all over the world, pursuing research at the doctoral or post-doctoral level will receive the UNESCO-L'OREAL International Fellowship and will present their research works at a poster session event that will be held on 18 March 2014, at UNESCO. The presentation will be followed by a cocktail.
The UNESCO-L’ORÉAL fellowships scheme focuses on UNESCO’s premise that people are the world’s greatest resource and that innovation and excellence, especially among the young women community, deserve to be supported and encouraged through the concerted efforts of the international community. The grant of the fellowships constitutes a key strategy through which impetus is being given to the enhancement of the role of women in devising scientific solutions to problems confronting humankind in the twenty-first century.
