International Women’s Day 2023: Celebrating CMU PORTUGAL Women

The 2023 International Women’s Day has run under the theme “DigitALL: Innovation and technology for gender equality”. The CMU Portugal Program is proud to count on inspiring Women to contribute to its goal of supporting innovation and technology initiatives. Here are some CMU Portugal researchers highlighted in the media for their role in Science and Technology. 

Elvira Fortunato, the Portuguese Minister of Science, Technology and Higher Education; Susana Sargento, CMU Portugal Scientific director at Universidade de Aveiro; and Filipa Fixe from our industry partner Glintt who is leading our project WoW, were included in Sapo Tek 20 Women, to highlight Women who stand out in the field of Science and Technology.

After having our National Director Inês Lynce featured in the last edition of the book “Mulheres na Ciência” by Ciência Viva, this year’s edition includes Ana Paiva, CMU Portugal researcher and PI of CMU Portugal project Agents and Catarina Barata, a researcher within our project IntelligentCare.

Inês Lynce’s interview with Exame Informática back in 2021 was again mentioned in an article by the same magazine on how to attract Women to Technological areas referring to the fact that no one knows how to do it but that there are a lot of people trying. CMU Portugal is proud to be part of those who are trying and to have amazing women involved in the Program’s educational and research activities. 

We are looking forward to continuing to pave together ways to create equal opportunities for all Women!
