Overview

Overview

  • Introduction

  • State of the art

  • Methodology

  • Findings

  • Recommendations


Background

Background

  • ETAN (European Technology Assessment Network), an expert group on women in science set up by EC in 1998

    • members from ten Member States of the European Union (Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and Sweden)

    • reported on position of women in science in the European Union primarily in Western Europe

  • Helsinki Group on women and science, set up by EC in 1999

    • official representatives from 32 countries, mostly Member States of EU

    • national reports discussing national policies on promoting women in science in the involved countries

    • reported not very favourable situation of women in research and development overall

    • lack of proper sex-disaggregated statistics and of harmonised data

  • Enwise Expert Group set up by EC in 2002

    • members from Central and Eastern Europe and the Baltic States

    • reports on women scientist often having under-funded position within the scientific community, a double burden in maintaining a satisfactory work-life balance and an implicit expectation that all hindrances form part of the private sphere without any public recognition


Cec wys fp6 eu project

CEC-WYS – FP6 EU Project

Central European Centre for Women and Youth in Science (CEC-WYS)

  • Partners from the Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Italy, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia

  • Based on the report delivered by the Enwise Expert Group

  • Main objectives are to:

    • sensitize wider society,

    • empower women scientists and young scientists,

    • generate and disseminate knowledge on gender equality in science

    • support women and youth in science


Some enwise recommendations

(some) Enwise recommendations

  • National educational policies have to pay special attention to creating a general approach supporting gender mainstreaming from elementary school to higher education.

  • At universities and scientific institutions a department or a person has to be appointed responsible for supporting “women and science” issues and implementing employment policies focusing on equal opportunities.

  • Media has to improve its picture of science and conduct awareness raising campaigns in the Enwise countries. The general picture has to be more attractive for women and the younger generation.

  • Inspired by recommendations of the Enwise report and putting the Enwise recommendations in specific conditions of each country


Purpose of the comparative report

Purpose of the comparative report

  • International mapping of the situation of women in science in

    • Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia

  • To present current legal developments in gender equality in science and some current statistical data on the situation of women in science

  • To empirically map the situation facing women scientists as seen through the eyes of policy makers, leading researchers and public media:

    • mapping the knowledge and attitudes to the position of women in science and research

    • scientifically - how the three groups of respondents represent the issue of gender equality and what knowledge they have of the issue

    • politically - drawing the attention of relevant actors to the issue of gender equality in science and research


Who was involved

Who was involved

  • National politics (questionnaire A):

    • representatives in charge of science and education policy (eg., Ministry of Higher Education, Governmental Office for Equal Opportunities)

  • Science and research (questionnaire B):

    • senior representatives of the higher education institutions (eg., rectors of universities, deans of faculties), the Academy of Sciences

  • Media (questionnaire C):

    • representatives of decision-makers in influential public press, national radio and television
