Women in science

Despite the progress towards achieving gender balance over the last few decades, women are still under-represented in scientific research. Cnr Nano acknowledges the critical role women and girls play in science and technology, and  is committed to promote full and equal access to and participation in science for women.


On the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2023, our institute celebrated the talent and contribution of its excellent female researchers by joining the social media campaign #womenatCNR


The initiative was inaugurated on Feb. 11, 2022 by the Cnr-Scitec institute, in 2023 it was taken up by Cnr Nano and many other Cnr institutes, garnering a total of 300 women who participated enthusiastically with a snapshot in the lab and a short caption telling their interests and what they love about their job. The #womenatCNR were therefore the protagonists throughout 2023 of a social campaign aimed at enhancing the female community working at Cnr animated by enthusiasm, passion and curiosity.


The faces and stories of Cnr NANO’s female protagonists are gathered here to highlight the wealth of expertise, enthusiasm and commitment of female scientists dedicated to nanoscience research
