L’Oréal and Unesco have been involved for 23 years with the “For Women in Science” project, the first international award dedicated to women working in the scientific sector. Since 1998, 3,600 female researchers have been supported in their career in 117 countries. Five of these scientists, after winning the prize, have been awarded the Nobel: among them Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna, winners of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2020.
«This year we all had a clear awareness of how necessary scientific research is – comments Francois-Xavier Fenart, president and CEO of L’Oréal Italia -. Indeed, it is science that has provided us with the answer to tackle a global pandemic that had frozen our lives. This is why this year we are particularly proud to reward these six young researchers, so that they can carry out their research projects in Italy and so that they become role models, examples to follow and emulate, for their colleagues and for all. young women and girls. To date we have awarded 100 scholarships in Italy, an important milestone that pushes us to continue to engage in this path that began nineteen years ago, convinced that female researchers can and should contribute to scientific progress and that they are crucial to achieving the objectives. of sustainable development on which to build our future “.
