Final Report - WHIST (Women's careers hitting the target: Gender management in scientific and technological research)

Project ID: 230278
Funded under: FP7-SIS


Women's under-representation in the scientific and technological research is a complex phenomenon. The project WHIST, which was funded by the European Commission (EC), had the general aim of increasing gender diversity in scientific organisations, since making full use of both male and female human resources and scientific talents contributes to the advancement of science and, to a higher level, of innovation in the European context.

This final activity report firstly outlines the project background and then analyses the objectives sought by the participants. It also refers to the activities that were undertaken and analyses their principal findings. Finally, the document closes with a detailed overview of the potential impact of WHIST and of the implemented knowledge dissemination actions.
