Final Report - ENCOUWOMSCI (Encouragement to Advance - Training Seminars for Women Scientists)

Project ID: 36653
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY


ENCOUWOMSCI constitutes a novel and unique approach for female postdocs intending to apply for senior positions in academia, as career support for women scientists mostly focuses on national structures and are carried out on a national level. Women are still underrepresented in leading positions in science and research. Although half of the student population in the European Union is female, only 13.2 % of women scientists are senior academic staff.

The project ENCOUWOMSCI aimed to encourage and empower women scientists to apply for professorships. ENCOUWOMSCI intended to raise the proportion of female scientists in senior positions at universities and in research. The final report highlights the value that the project has brought to women in science.
