Final Report - ADVANCE (Advanced Training for Women in Scientific Research)

Project ID: 36712
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY


It has been shown that there are significant differences in the career paths of male and female scientists. The road towards a faculty position not only takes longer for women, there is also a significant portion of female candidates who drop out before reaching their goal, a phenomenon appropriately referred to as 'leaky pipeline'.

The objective of the ADVANCE programme was to promote the participation of women in science and research by supporting female scientists in acquiring research and career management skills and other tools which help them build up their careers.

The final report includes photos of the participants and in it essential prerequisites that allow for sustainable implementation of coaching and mentoring as parts of regular personnel development within the single institutions were defined. All resources are available free of charge for interested organisations as well as for the consortium itself. It is not planned to make commercial use of the projects outcomes.
