María de Maeztu Gender and ICT program

Technology is present in every aspect of our lives. The lack of gender diversity in ICT becomes an issue of social and economic importance. A central aspect in our strategy to strengthen our knowledge extraction activities is to infuse diversity in all of them. The program is named after María de Maeztu, a pioneer in promoting the access to higher education for women in Spain.
