Launched in 2004, in a partnership between L'Oréal Portugal, the UNESCO National Commission and the Foundation for Science and Technology, this program encourages young researchers who carry out their research in Portugal, with a PhD degree and up to 35 years of age, to pursue original and relevant studies to the health and/or the environment sectors.

"The growing number of high-quality candidate projects led us, in this 13th edition, to distinguish four rather than three young scientists" says Inês Caldeira, L'Oréal Country Manager. With these four young women, the L'Oréal Portugal Honor Medals for Women in Science total 41 scientists already supported in our country.

"All the programs developed by the L'Oréal Foundation aim at a science based on merit and without the gender biases that still prevent many women from dedicating themselves to research and science," says Inês Caldeira, recalling the latest data available: "Even in the Europe, there is a cleavage and the percentage of female researchers is still 33%, with a much greater underrepresentation in engineering and technology. "
