Final Report - UPGEM (Understanding Puzzles in the Gendered European Map Brain Drain in Physics through the Cultural Looking Glass)

Project ID: 518048
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY


This is the final report of the UPGEM project whose primary objective has been to identify relevant local cultural-historical processes behind the frustration of female physicists which leads them to leave or plan to leave the field of physics at universities in Europe even though they have the same formal qualifications as their male colleagues. The report gives an account of the proceedings of the workshops and results from their research. Furthermore, an UPGEM network of researchers studying women in science including UPGEM project partners from Estonia, Finland, Italy and Denmark and a number of other researchers from United States, Sweden, Norway and Serbia has been initiated (and accepted as full conditional member) under the European Platform of Women Scientists (EPWS).
