Women in science

CRAG received the “HR Excellence in Research” award from the European Commission in 2015. It recognizes the institute's commitment in developing an HR Strategy for Researchers, including a Gender Equity Action Plan.

The results of this plan have resulted in a more balanced recruitment of new research personnel, and an increase in the percentage of women in the Scientific managerial committees and positions at CRAG.

To further develop and implement new initiatives to promote equal opportunities for men and women and to foster women’s progress in their scientific career, CRAG has created a Women in Science Committee. In order to address and take care of the needs of the different groups of CRAG, the members of this Committee are representative of all research categories at CRAG, including some administrative areas. The current Women in Science Committee members are:

Maria José Aranzana (Chair)
Maite Iriarte (co-Chair)
Zoila Babot
Laura Botigué
Lara Cejudo
Aida Maric
Ignacio Rubio-Somoza
Águila Ruiz
Manjul Singh
