Bringing to Light – Call for Projects

Bringing to Light - Call for Projects

Bringing to light is a project whose aim is exactly to “bring to light” the work of female scientists and provide a space for them to tell the public about their research projects. Thanks to the winning projects of the first edition, sustainability, energy and climate change were discussed while reporting on Italian research.

For the second edition, this year’s Call for Projects opens to all female researchers and entrepreneurs working in the environmental sector in Italy and abroad.

UK Confederation by Confassociazioni has enthusiastically accepted the invitation of the organiser Mirella Orsi, offering its patronage to the initiative. “The project deals with a topic that is extremely relevant to us, but also fundamental for our present and the future of the new generations,’ explains Stefano Potorti, President of UK Confederation by Confassociazioni. ‘On behalf of the whole association, I warmly congratulate Mirella Orsi and all the organisers, and I hope that this will be the first of a long series of initiatives.

If you are a female researcher or entrepreneur and would like to participate in “Bringing to Light – Scienziate e imprenditrici per il Clima”, submit your project by filling in the form here


A maximum of 10 projects will be selected out of those received no later than 31 December 2022 and will be featured in various national and international initiatives and in a special issue of “L’Ecofuturo magazine” to be published on the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science 2023.
