Financing approved by Maduro is provided to women scientists

The scientific projects cover the field of social sciences, environment and education, among others.

The delivery of financing to women with scientific research projects began this Friday, in the Ministry of Popular Power for Science and Technology (Mincyt).

According to information from Mincyt, the activity is led by the sectoral vice president of Science, Technology, Education and Health, Gabriela Jiménez and is carried out after the approval - on Thursday - of resources by the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro , to finance 210 scientific research projects led by Venezuelan women with an investment of more than seven million dollars, to enhance the scientific and technological development of the nation.

The various research projects cover agri-food, pharmaceutical, hydrocarbon, industrial, telecommunications and computing sectors, as well as the field of social sciences, dissemination of scientific and technological knowledge, environment, scientific seedbeds and education.

Decolonial science

The sectoral vice president of Science, Technology, Education and Health, Gabriela Jiménez, previously indicated that these are not individual projects. “Behind each of them there are other women, communities, research centers, and there is a science that responds to our people, a science located in Venezuela, a decolonial science,” she pointed out.

The projects were chosen after a call made to university students, women's committees, works of the Venezuelan Institute of Scientific Research (Ivic), research centers and various affiliated entities.

The actions are part of the Great Mission of Science, Technology and Innovation Dr. Humberto Fernández-Morán that encourages scientific and technological culture as an element to promote national production.
