EuroScientist’s Special Issue : Gender Balance in Research and Academia


Euroscientist has published a Special Issue dedicated to the Gender Balance in Research and Academia.
“We have asked the views of Nobel Laureates, who have an interesting perspective on women in science. You will also discover a wealth of opinions describing what remains to be done to resolve gender issues. Not only do we discuss ways of resolving conscious and unconscious gender bias, but we also look at issues related to how gender perspective affects the nature of research itself.”

Among the experts cited is EPWS Treasurer Maren A. Jochimsen emphazising the importance of the gender dimension in research with respect to scientific quality.
