Women in Science | Gender Equality

Promoting gender equality is a core activity for the EU. The Commission's “Strategic engagement for gender equality 2016-2019” is a reference framework for increased efforts at all levels, be they European, national, regional or local. In Horizon 2020 Gender is a cross-cutting issue and is mainstreamed in each of the different parts of the Work Programme, ensuring a more integrated approach to research and innovation. Though gender inequalities in R&I persist, the latest “She Figures 2015” (including some of the Western Balkan countries) publication shows that some progress has been made, although attrition continues to exist at higher levels of a scientific career.

Please find below some gender / women in science related links and articles including the She Figures 2015 and some open calls in Horizon 2020 related to topics with gender dimension.

Women in Science | Gender Equality was in focus of the WBC-RTI.info newsletter in May/June 2016. Related article is available here. Please find below also a selection of the topic related articles.
