This report submitted at the request of the Research Council of June 2001, gives an overview of women and science actions implemented at European level since the Council Resolution and of the results achieved. The focus of the overview is on the European Commission's activities to promote gender equality in science and the progress made in increasing the participation of women in science in the EU Member States since 1999. The report demonstrates that although some progress has been achieved since the adoption of the previous reports in 1999 and 2001, the situation is still far from satisfactory. With a view to preparing the Seventh Framework Programme, the following challenges need to be addressed if real progress is to be made in achieving gender equality in science.
