Publication on Gender Equality Policies in public research

Gender equality policies in public research

Based on a survey among Members of the Helsinki Group on Gender in Research and Innovation, 2013 (Author: Dr. Anke Lipinsky, CEWS)

Gender issues in research and innovation have gained increased recognition on policy agendas at national, European and international levels, as well as at the level of research organisations. This report on “Gender Equality Policies in Public Research” is based on a survey among the members of the Helsinki Group, the Commission’s advisory group on gender, research and innovation. It gives a detailed analysis of the current state-of-play of EU Member States’ and associated countries’ initiatives for promoting gender equality in research and innovation. It comes at a critical review point along the path towards a fully operational European Research Area (ERA) and provides a timely insight for the forthcoming ERA Progress Report 2014
