About the conference
In this conference, we will start discussing and building capacities for a more gender fair research funding system. In the course of this conference we would like to examine the status quo of gender (in)equalities as well as potential bias in grant allocation processes and research careers. We are also going to present the conceptual framework of GRANteD Project and exchange ideas on related issues and further steps.

The conference will take place on February 24th 2020 in Vienna at Sensengasse 1, 1090.

We are very much looking forward to your participation!

Gender Gap in Research Funding

It has been 20 years since the European Commission adopted its first communication on Women in Science. In the meantime, a lot of effort has been made to foster gender equality but still inequalities in research and academia remain. Starting from the latest data from She Figures we discuss different success rates for men and women.

Efforti Toolbox 2.0
