COST ACTION CA20116

Women in Science

Women in Science

In 2024, only 35% of all students in STEM related fields of study are women

Despite statistics that show close performance of girls and boys in science and mathematics, strong gendered stereotypes prevail: many girls are still less encouraged in STEM fields and have limited choices (if any) for their education and career development

Women occupy a small minority of top-level positions despite an improvement in recent years and only 22 women have been awarded a Nobel prize in a scientific discipline to date.

The OPERA COST Action aims to promote the Women in Science by creating this dedicated platform.

Our Objective: Involving Women in Science to highlight their career and favor their access to senior academic positions.
