Gender balance in research is improving, but pace is too slow: EU She Figures

Friday, 8 March, 2019
The number of women with a career in research is slowly growing in Europe. Still, they remain significantly underrepresented, and their potential not fully recognised and valued.

Carlos Moedas, European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, said:

The She Figures confirm that things are moving in the right direction. Yet we need to do more and we need to do it faster if we are to achieve a good gender balance in the near future. We need all scientific talents in play, both women and men, to tackle challenges like climate change and global pollution. alert figures 2018
