Gender and Research Conference, Brussels, 8-9 November 2001: Conclusions



The objectives of the conference were to present the results achieved since the Women and Science Action Plan was launched in 1999, and to give new momentum to work undertaken to integrate the gender dimension in European research. The conference thus provided an opportunity to present the work of the Helsinki Group on Women and Science and the results of the extensive gender impact assessment exercise carried out on the specific programmes of the Fifth Framework Programme. It also provided a context for discussing how the gender dimension should be taken into account in the new Framework Programme and how the place and role of women could be strengthened in the European Research Area.

This document presents the main conclusions of the conference along with an overview of all the conference sessions. The full (conference proceedings) are available separately.
