SYNERGY coordinator Elvira Fortunato was chosen, by the French Presidency of the EU, to join a group of 27 inspiring women from Europe for International Women’s Day, celebrated on March 8th.
27 videos were made, in which these women talk about Europe and the very diverse activities in which they have excelled. They are physicists, songwriters, chefs, activists, police inspectors, top athletes, and they all have brilliant professional careers.
“I was surprised by the choice of my name made by the French Presidency of the EU in this very important initiative on International Women’s Day, and it is also worth mentioning the fact that science was the sector contemplated to represent Portugal”, says Elvira Fortunato to Expresso.
