The new European Research Council (ERC) President’s statement at the United Nations Annual “International Day of Women and Girls in Science Assembly” in New York. Women in science: “Not a world of catch-up, but a world of leadership”
In his key note speech at the UN in New York, Prof. Ferrari spoke out for women in science and gave a message of optimism and hope:
The role of women and girls in science will continue to grow, and is key in our efforts towards a better future. It will no longer be a world of catch-up, but a true world of leadership. We cannot afford to have only one half of humankind fully engaged in the scientific endeavour.
