L‘Oréal-Unesco awards for women in science

Each year, five outstanding women scientists – one per continent – are honoured for the contributions of their research in life sciences, the strength of their commitments and their impact on society. The 2014 ceremony will be held on 19 March 2014 at the Great Amphitheater of the Sorbonne University (Paris). In this framework 15 young scientists will receive the Unesco-L'Oréal International Fellowships.

By giving these researchers increased visibility, the awards show the way for new generations, encouraging young women to follow their example. Since the launch of the program, 77 women have been distinguished by the L’Oréal-Unesco Awards, two of whom subsequently received the Nobel Prize.
