De L’Oréal Foundation en UNESCO hebben de laureaten van de 21ste International Awards For Women in Science bekend gemaakt. Hier worden toonaangevende vrouwelijke wetenschappers van over de hele wereld gelauwerd door hun baanbrekend onderzoek en zijn een absolute prioriteit in hun discipline zoals wiskunde, wetenschappen of computerwetenschappen. Vijf laureaten ontvangen elk 100.000 euro en zullen dit op 14 maart in ontvangst nemen tijdens de awarduitreiking in het hoofdkwartier van UNESCO in Parijs, die live te volgen zal zijn op Facebook.
