Scientists around the world are invited to nominate candidates for the 2023 L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science (FWIS) International Awards.
Created in 1998, the Awards honours – every year – 5 eminent women scientists from 5 regions of the world. Alternating every other year, these exceptional researchers are rewarded for their important contributions to the progress of science, either in Life sciences or in the fields of Physical sciences, Mathematics and Computer science.
The 2023 edition of the FWIS International Awards will designate five outstanding scientific women. Since the beginning of the programme in 1998, the L’Oréal-UNESCO International Awards have honoured 122 laureates, five of whom have also won the Nobel Prize. Each of the five Laureates will receive an award of €100,000 for her contribution to advances in scientific research at a ceremony to be held in March 2023.
