International Day of Women and Girls in Science on 11 February celebrates the important contributions which women make to science and technology. To mark the day, we are highlighting women across the Europeana Initiative who lead the way in tech, research and development in cultural heritage, asking them,‘What would you like to be asked about your work - and what is the answer?’
Every year, the Europeana Initiative and partners contribute to Women’s History Month by sharing stories about women from history, as well as stories about how projects and cultural heritage institutions are showcasing women’s history. This year is no exception. Here are some of the things you can look forward to this Women’s History Month.
