Innovating Science Award
The Association of Hungarian Women in Science (NaTE).
The Association of Hungarian Women in Science (NaTE) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that aims to promote STEM and computer sciences among girls who are under-represented in these fields of education. NaTE was established in 2008 by female scientists. Since then, NaTE has grown into a country-wide network of scientists — both men and women — working in STEM or social sciences, who are committed to the gender balance in academia, technology, innovation, and research and development. NaTE has founded projects such as the ‘Excellence Award for Women in Science’, ‘Scindicator – A science communication competition’, ‘Smart future for Girls’ and ‘Girls’ Day’.
