Benchmarking policy measures for gender equality in science

Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

In 2002, the Helsinki Group on Women in Science, made of representatives of the Member States and gender experts, published a report on national policies on women in science, which also included the national statistical profiles. The "Benchmarking national policies on gender equality in science" report provides an update on the national policies and on the statistical profiles of the 33 countries represented in the Helsinki Group, and it introduces for the first time data from the Western Balkans. This report builds on the previous one and evaluates the policies and measures with indicators measuring the presence of women in science. It gives an interesting and original overview on the various national situations and tries to develop a European synopsis.
