Women and Science
The Statistical Correspondents of the
Helsinki Group


Who are they?

When the Helsinki Group on Women and Science first convened in 1999, it rapidly became clear that more reliable and timely information was needed to feed their policy debates. To this end, each member nominated a statistical correspondent from an organisation concerned with the collection of R&D data for their country, and the resulting group met for the first time in March 2001. There are now statistical correspondents for all of the Helsinki Group countries.

The statistical correspondents are instrumental in providing national data on women researchers and in ensuring that sound progress is made in exploring the interface between women and science. They also keep the Commission informed about the availability of data from national sources and contribute to decision-making on which data will be collected cross-nationally.

All the correspondents are either based in their national statistical offices or in national scientific Ministries, Centres, Institutes, Observatories, Academies and Secretariats.
