Gender equality remains a challenge in Research and Innovation across Europe. European Union funds a series of research projects aiming to increase the participation of women in this sector, improve their careers prospects, the gender balance in decision-making bodies, the gender dimension in research content where relevant, and increase the quality and societal relevance of produced knowledge, technologies and innovations.
