Science in Society Vision

…open effective and democratic European KB Society

  • “to stimulate the harmonious integration of scientific and technological endeavour and associated research policies in the European social web, by encouraging reflection debate on S&T and their relationship with the whole spectrum of society and culture”

WHAT is EQUALITY in RTD?

  • Gender dimension-> Research Content WP

  • Number -> participation of women scientists in FP activities

  • Stereotypes-> in early stage, schools

  • Career development

  • Others..

Women in science fp6 fp6 2002 2006 18 m in 4 years

Women in Science FP6FP6 2002-2006 (18 M€ in 4 years)

Increasing the NUMBER of women in science through:

  • Monitoring (She Figures and Gender Watch System)

  • Working conditions (WLB, Partnership for Researchers)

  • Reaching out to schools to combat early stereotypes

  • Network promotion (EPWS)

  • Women in Industrial Research

  • Ambassadors of science

  • Mentoring

    MAINSTREAM gender in research:

  • Inter-service working group on gender implications in different research fields (transports, nanotechnologies, health …)

  • Gender Reporting in FP funded projects

  • GAPs for NoE and IP


Women in science fp7 fp7 2007 2013 up to now 16 m in 3 years towards organisational change

Women in Science FP7FP7 2007-2013 ( up to now 16 M€ in 3 years…) Towards organisational change

  • Survey on positive action schemes for women in decision-making (EU, USA, Australia, Canada):

  • Gender training / toolkit for FP7 (tender)

  • Expert group “Gender and Excellence” on grant and funding systems, transparency and accountability

Gender distribution of Scientific Coordinators and Scientists in Charge for each partner institution for FP6 funded projects (By funding instrument)


Mapping the maze getting more women to the top in research

Mapping the Maze Getting More Women to the Top in Research

In EU scientific boards, women are less likely to be promoted /nominated + considerable pay-gap

Expert group > to identify positive actions to promote women into senior positions in public research. What is needed is a change!


Benchmarking of policy measures for gender equality in science

Benchmarking of policy measures for gender equality in science

  • Updates previous Helsinki Group report on National Policies on Women and Science in Europe (2002)

  • Covers EU-27 + Iceland, Israel, Norway, Croatia, Switzerland, Turkey, in addition to five Western Balkans countries

  • Mapping of current gender equality measures

  • Identify and analyse the success of key women and science policies and actions

  • Produce national statistical profiles, Analyse success of identified policies and actions


Access to funding gender and excellence

No very systematic pattern on success rate by sex was found

However there are gender patterns (e.g. women are less likely to apply for funding than men and they request smaller amounts of money)

Measures implemented in pro-active countries include targets or quotas; and integrated policies that increase university funding based on universities performances in terms of gender equity.

ACCESS to FUNDINGGender and Excellence


Francesca crippa european commission dg research science economy and society unit l 4 scientific culture and gender i

Women in Science and Technology

  • Women in S&T Group created back in 2003. Mandate 2007-8: creating sustainable careers

  • Participation of experts and HR managers from private companies (eg Bosch, Fraunhofer, SHELL, TOTAL, Xerox…)

  • What can companies and universities do to attract and retain women (and men) in S&T? Case studies in BES

  • Focus on WLB for women and men and on stereotypes in S&T careers

“ Programs aimed at increasing numbers of women in science generally attempt

to fix the women… to make them competitive… but this is not enough…

you also have to fix the administration…”

Londa Schiebinger


Fixing the administration

2005: Charter for Researchers and Code of conduct for RTD employers

2007: Comparative study on positive actions in Europe and third countries at institute and national level

2008: “better careers and more mobility: European Partnership for Researchers”

2008: Gender management in research organisation: identify and promote best practices

2009: Modernization of universities HR management

2009: Awareness raising among public and private institutions

2009: Involvement of public at large in the debate on gender in science

Fixing the administration


Stocktaking and way forward

Stocktaking and way forward

  • New Impetus needed

  • Need to new focus: from research (by, for, on) women to gender RTD and organizations ( support structural changes)

  • Need for more women at top(in boards) – targets?

  • Need to reinforce data collection, harmonization, benchmarking and monitoring, new indicators etc

  • From education to careers, from WLB to LB, from scientifically informed to scientifically formed society

  • Learning from international experiences, business approaches

  • Member Statesrole is key
