BIST Mothers of Science supporting grants call now open

As the first action within a larger "Women in Science" programme, the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology has launched a new grants scheme offering support to BIST scientists and mothers. The call is open until 12 March.

In a bid to address the sharp decline in numbers of women at research associate and/or senior postdoc (41% of the whole) and group leader (15%) level at affiliated research centres, the Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST) opened its new Mothers of Science supporting grant scheme on 11 February. This is the first action within a larger "Women in Science" programme and aims to address what was identified as an immediate need at the BIST round table on Empowering Women in Science held on 28 November 2017.

Deadline for applications: 12 March 2018
