Research on Micro and Nanotechnologies does not show a clear gender dimension. However, the use of such technologies may introduce gender aspects, as in the case of Biomedical and Food applications. IMB-CNM will take care of the identification of the gender dimension of research contents and will act accordingly when developing new technologies, devices and systems.
In addition, IMB-CNM has an active politics on the diffusion of the research results through outreach activities for students of secondary school. Such activities intend to promote the interest for scientific studies in particular among young female students which use to be less interested in such disciplines. For this reason, and when possible, the outreach activities are carried out by young female scientist of IMB-CNM, so as to act as role models.
Finally, IMB-CNM, following the regulations, presents sex-disaggregated personnel data as shown in IMB-CNM Staff.
