Topic: Impact of gender diversity on Research & Innovation
GERI-2-2014

Specific challenge: Some studies have explored in specific fields (e.g. ICT) and countries the impact of gender diversity on innovation in terms of productivity, performance and relevance to society (e.g. number of publications and of patents, market shares). However gender diversity in teams and organisations has not yet been systematically analysed.

Scope: The proposals shall develop concepts and methodologies for the evaluation of the impacts of gender diversity in research teams and organisations on research quality and productivity, as well as on innovation; apply the concepts and methodologies developed to a selected range of sectors using a comparative approach across countries.

The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of the order of EUR 1 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts.

Expected impact: The research will provide a better understanding of the relationship between gender diversity and Research and Innovation performance. In the medium term, it shall help develop appropriate conditions for to contribute to research intensity and productivity.

Type of action: Research and Innovation Actions.
