For Women in Science L'Orela awarded to Prof. Nicola Spaldin  
 L’Oréal Foundation

Nicola Spaldin, Materials Theory, receives L'Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science Award for her revolutionary research in the field of materials science. The awards aim to recognise and support outstanding female researchers from all around the world. Nicola Spaldin has received this prestigious award for the Europe region. The British scientist's research lays the theoretical foundations for the understanding and development of so-called multiferroic materials, which have the unique property of being simultaneously magnetic and electric.
