GenTIC director Milagros Sáinz has published a new article in the journal Nota d’Economia, which latest edition is a monographic issue devoted to the impact and challenges of the digital revolution in Catalonia.
Doctor Sáinz’s contribution focuses on the gender gap in the choice of STEM and ICT studies in Catalonia and Spain. The article analyses the situation of girls and women across academic disciplines in secondary education and university, and examines several interventions developed in Europe and the United States aimed at attracting and retaining women in scientific and technological studies. On the other hand, Milagros Sáinz offers recommendations to increase women’s representation in STEM and ICT studies and occupations and encourage their equal participation in the digital society.
Nota d’Economia is published periodically since 1983 by the Government of Catalonia’s Department of Economy and Finance. The latest edition was presented on November 15, 2019, with interventions of the Vice President of the Catalan Government, Pere Aragonès, the Director-General of Economic Analysis of the Government of Catalonia, Marta Curto, and the Secretary of Economy, Natàlia Mas Guix.
