The video has been prepared in the framework of the 4th edition of the Ada Byron Award. The Faculty of Engineering of Deusto´s University has made this video using humour in order to make society aware of the work of women in the scientific and technology field. For the preparation of this sketch, the University of Deusto has worked together with a team of professionals who were part of the successful TV programme "Vaya semanita".
The video is sponsored by Iberdrola and coincides with the announcement of the 4th edition of the Ada Byron Award which aims at giving visibility to women's work in the scientific and technology field. The deadline for the submission of applications is on 8 March, International Women’s Day. The amount of 3,000 EUR will be awarded at the inauguration of the 5th edition of FOROTECH, Deusto Engineering and Technology Week, taking place in Bilbao from 5 to 7 April.
Both the video and the award are pioneer at state level. They aim to promote female competences in R&D as well as to highlight the importance of technology for economic growth and as a value for the society.
