Research and Development:
evt’s Minerva Scientifica project has seen us working closely with female composers and scientists at King’s College London and Newcastle University. Most recently we have collaborated with the SHINE Project, St. Andrew’s University and we are now progressing a project featuring biochemistry and Alzheimer’s with scientists from the Serpell Lab and the Centre for Research in Opera and Music Theatre at the University of Sussex.
Minerva Scientifica sets out to shine a light on Women Scientists and Composers in history and the present day, telling remarkable stories of women who have succeeded against the odds, inspiring the next generation of women to smash through the glass ceiling.
