Final Report - WS DEBATE (Stimulating Policy Debate on Women and Science Issues in Central Europe)

Project ID: 36651
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY


The WS DEBATE project was a Specific Support Action (SSA) in the EU Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). Its overall objective was the stimulation of policy and public debate on the situation and perspectives of women in science, in order to bridge the gap between policy developments and public understanding of the related issues, and raise gender awareness among policy makers, scientists, as well as among the lay public interested in scientific developments.

As part of the end results the report reveals that the conferences exposed evidence on women's marginalisation in science, sensitising the scientific and the wider public for the issues. Women scientists have been sensitised for the relevance of gender dimension in research and they were exposed to epistemological concerns related to the issue. The conferences also encouraged national, disciplinary, regional and wider European networking of women scientists.
