The L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science Awards 2019 is open. UNESCO and the L’Oréal Corporate Foundation seek to recognize women researchers who, through the scope of their work, have contributed to overcoming today’s global challenges.

Faced with global challenges such as the acceleration of new technologies, aging populations or the threat to biodiversity, UNESCO and L’Oréal remain convinced that these women researchers will have a major impact on society and lay the foundations for the future. As such, UNESCO and L’Oréal want to contribute to their recognition and provide them with the means to continue their commitment to science with energy and passion.

Scientists and scientific institutions around the world are invited to present and nominate the most qualified candidates for the 2019 L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science Awards.
