These awards target educational centers supported by public funds and public or private not-for-profit bodies, which may present their educational projects, course materials or educational innovations aimed at enhancing the interest and presence of girls and young women in science and technology.
The call, which will open between September 1 and October 7, consists of fifteen awards distributed in five avenues: Educational Centers for Higher Level Vocational Training; mid-grade vocational training; ESO and baccalaureate; early childhood and primary education; and public or private entities or organizations.
