Princess Marie attends the L’Oreal-UNESCO Awards for Women in Science 2017

Today, Princess Marie attended the L’Oréal-UNESCO Awards for Women in Science 2017 as Patron of the Danish Committee of UNESCO. These awards were created in Denmark in 2007 by the L’Oreal Foundation and UNESCO. The awards exist in different countries as well.

Princess Marie has previously attended in 2013 and in 2015 . Over the years , 97 awards have been given in different countries and two recipients have won a Nobel Prize. This year’s Danish edition was special as it was the 10th anniversary of the awards in Denmark.

The awards aims to recognize women in science and push women to expose their ideas and their works. Each year, three women are chosen among the contestants to receive the awards. This year’s winners are Katrine Ter-Borch Gram Schjoldager from the University of Copenhagen, Kirsten Marie Ornsbjerg from the Chemical Institute of the University of Copenhagen and Sofia Ribeiro from the Geological Survey for Denmark and Greenland Institute. Each winner also gets 100000 kr ( = around $16,000 ) for further research.

Princess Marie gave a short speech , praising the women and saying how important it is that more and more women are recognized in their field of research even though scientific research is still a field dominated by men.
