In the run-up to International Women’s Day, we will be contributing to the dissemination of knowledge about women that have broken the bias by achieving outstanding accomplishments in their respective fields, by updating and translating into our local languages the Wikipedia pages of five exceptional women, each representing one of the countries we are present in.

The nominee from our Madrid office is Spanish industrial engineer Elena García Armada.

A world-renowned scientist in the field of robotics, Elena led the team within the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) that developed the first bionic exoskeleton for children with spinal muscular atrophy.
