The OWSD Cuba National Chapter
was founded in 1999 and is based at
the Cuban Academy of Sciences
in Havana. The chapter aims to
develop projects and programmes for women in science
and to strengthen collaboration with other OWSD chapters
in the LAC region.
The fellowship has really impacted my career. I was working in a university as an Assistant Lecturer, but with the OWSD fellowship I am undertaking a PhD that will allow me to reach the grade of Senior Lecturer.
What has surprised me is the way technology is emerging and affecting the current state of research. We are encountering a fourth industrial revolution that entails advances in computing power, quantum computing and artificial intelligence, which has already been shown to alter the way we conduct research.
