The live stream of this online webinar took place on Monday 6 March 2023 from 10.00 to 11.00 CET. You can watch the recording below.

Are you interested in human resources in science, technology and research? Would you like to know more about women’s participation in these sectors? Would you like to see how European countries compare in terms of gender balance?

Let us have a look at Eurostat’s figures on science and technology in order to explore questions like:

  • How do women fare compared to men in terms of educational background?
  • What is their share in employment in science and technology?
  • How are women represented among scientists and engineers in various economic sectors?
  • How many women researchers do we have in the EU as compared to men?
