Female Empowerment in Science, Technology, Engineering
and Mathematics (STEM)

Women scientists are leading ground-breaking research across the world. But despite their remarkable discoveries, women still represent just 33,3% of researchers globally, and their work rarely gains the recognition it deserves. Less than 4% of Nobel Prizes for science have ever been awarded to women, and only 11% of senior research roles are held by women in Europe.

On the occasion of the International Day of Women & Girls in Science on the 11th of February, our R&D Program Manager and Researcher, Dr Konstantina Panagiotou, together with the rest female scientists of the XGain project team, promoted gender equality in the scientific world. Konstantina was one of the leading authors of the XGain proposal, and currently she has an advisory role supporting the Project Management team of eBOS. “Do not let anyone dull your sparkle; you have the potential to become a maker of history through engineering. If not you, then who?” quoted as a female engineer in order to empower and inspire more women and girls into STEM.
