Recommendations for scientific institutions to Increase the retention of women in STI careers


The prototype looks to identify barriers women face in STI careers and recognize target institutions in Europe and third countries that can support institutional changes to retain women with STIs.


The Prototype proposes recommendations for scientific institutions (universities, RPOs, RFOs…) to increase the percentage of women in STI careers. Currently, only 30% of researchers are women. Institutional change in scientific organizations could help reduce women's dropout rate in STI careers.

Actions to be implemented
