Final Report - GAPP (Gender Awareness Participation Process: Differences in the choices of science careers)

Project ID: 42864
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY

Abstract

When we pass into the analysis of career choice, a gap between the male and female presence in research starts becoming evident and it is always increasing. In fact, the European Union average of women that choose research activities is actually as low as 35 %. If we then pass into commercial enterprises, the EU average falls down to 18 %.

The GAPP project examined the qualitative research and focussed on developing new practices in science communication and education to tackle the gender differences in Europe's science and technology. Their extensive final report includes photos and tables of the project and conference.
