Gender in research: Gender impact assessment of the specific programmes of the Fifth Framework Programme - an overview

Funded under: FP5


This report presents a synthesis of the key findings and recommendations of seven studies carried out as part of the gender impact assessment exercise, launched by the European Commission in June 2000, with a view to assessing the way in which gender issues are being addressed within the Fifth Framework Programme (FP5). Each study focused on one specific programme or sub-programme of the FP5, assessing whether and how gender issues have been taken into account and providing recommendations for a better integration of the gender dimension in future Community research in that area. As expected, the exercise as a whole has raised important points for consideration in the context of the new Multiannual Framework Programme 2002-2006 for Research,Technological Development and Demonstration.
