A recent report found that European women are underrepresented in research.
Published in Cientificas en Cifras 2021, the report unveiled that European women outnumber men as students at universities (54%) and as graduates (59%), as well as doctorate holders (48%).
“We’ve studied the feasibility of implementing different systems that certify or reward gender equality in research and innovation in the European Union,” according to an author of the study.
“Now it’s up to the European Commission to decide which of the three proposed scenarios it is going to adopt, whether it will choose a fourth alternative path, or simply do nothing.”
The study was conducted at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya.
