  Drive to integrate the gender dimension in science

Photo of article Disparities in gender equality in science and innovation constitute a major issue as women in science are under-represented in almost all European countries. However, the European Commission has set up a number of initiatives to change this and encourage more women in science. These include 'Science in Society', which provides financial support to research organisations for establishing gender equality plans. Whilst the European Research Council (ERC) are working to inspire female talent to apply for grants. Likewise, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MCA) encourage women to work in research while also helping to address the balance between career and family life. Through this initiative, nearly 40 % of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellows funded so far under the EU's current research Framework Programme (FP7) are women.

Scientific Support to Policies
Policy decisions – especially at the European level – are never easy. What policy-makers decide will potentially affect the lives of millions of people for many years. Recognising the power of science to serve the decision-making process, the European Commission funded over 250 projects under its ‘Scientific support to policies’ (SSP) initiative under the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) for Research. These projects are summarised in the Information Centre and described in more detail on the SSP web site.
