Final Report - BASNET (Baltic States network 'Women in sciences and high technology')

Project ID: 17170
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY

Abstract

The EU-funded BASNET project was a logical continuation of the work done by ENWISE group. It demonstrated the systematic and complex approach to tackle the gender equality problem in sciences and High-technology (HT) in the Baltic States. It aimed to:

1) mobilise an international effort by establishing the interregional Baltic States Network 'Women in sciences and HT' amongst women working groups, professional organisations and corresponding departments of the governmental institutions. To monitor changes in the scientific society and dissemination of the information, as well as good practices it was proposed to:
- establish the Baltic States Databases of 'Women in sciences and HT';
- create monitoring and information systems on 'Women in sciences and HT'.

2) concentrate the interdisciplinary efforts on formulation of the common Baltic States science strategy to ensure the equal participation of women in sciences and HT. This would be achieved by:
- carrying out the comprehensive sociological analysis determining the reasons of women' under-representation in sciences and HT in the Baltic States;
- analysing good practices of advanced countries.
