About the "Science by Women" program

The goal of the FMxA's Science by Women Program is to enable African women researchers to play a leading role in the transition of Africa to a knowledge-based and innovation-led economy through research that can be transferred into products, processes, services and technologies having impact on people´s lives.

The Barcelona GSE established a collaboration agreement with the Women for Africa Foundation in 2015, pledging to work with the organization to leverage economic research via activities designed specifically for African women.
