The campaign was designed to bring basic science to the general public through the work of 15 CSIC researchers funded by the European Research Council (ERC). A series of short videos, which were screened in social, cultural and educational centers, showed their work and careers.
The scientists who collaborated in the initiative were: Ángela Nieto (National Research Award 2019), from the Institute of Neurosciences (IN-CSIC-UMH); Neus Sabaté, from the Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona (IMB-CNM-CSIC); Carme Torras (National Research Award 2020), from the Institute of Robotics and Industrial Informatics (IRI-CSIC-UPC); Mercedes García Arenal (National Research Award 2019), from the Center for Human and Social Sciences (CCHS-CSIC); Teresa Puig, from the Institute of Materials Sciences of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC), Ana Rodríguez, from the CCHS-CSIC; Carmen Collado, from the Institute of Agrochemistry and Food Technology (IATA-CSIC); Eloísa Herrera, from IN-CSIC-UMH; Esperanza Alfonso, from CCHS-CSIC; Guillermina López Bendito, from IN-CSIC-UMH; Leonor Peña, from the Institute of History of CCHS-CSIC; Maria Soledad Martín, from the Institute of Micro and Nanotechnology (IMN-CNM-CSIC); Marta Mas, from the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC); Montserrat Calleja, from IMN-CNM-CSIC; and Nuria Flames, from the Institute of Biomedicine of Valencia (IBV-CSIC).
The project "Las científicas cuentan" was funded by the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT), of the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities, and co-funded by the Fundación General CSIC and supported by the ERC.
The international jury of the International Biennial of Scientific Cinema BICC, formed by different personalities dedicated to scientific audiovisual communication and dissemination in Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Italy, Russia, Venezuela and Ecuador, chose its winners from among 35 finalist audiovisual works and more than 180 participating videos. The public also gave its verdict through different virtual rooms in remote Ibero-American venues in Spain, Latin America and, for the first time, Moscow.
