What is Gender STI?

Gender STI is an international Research project that aims to analyze the participation of women in science, technology and innovation (STI) dialogues between Europe and third countries.

The project will focus on three key areas: gender equality in scientific careers, gender balance in decision making and the integration of the gender dimension in Research and Innovation (R&I) content.

Furthermore, Gender STI will co-design solutions to common challenges found in these areas through a design thinking process. The Gender STI consortium is made up of partners from 16 countries in four continents.


The European Commission considers gender equality in STI to be a priority. Gender-related biases lead to horizontal segregation, or disparities among different scientific disciplines, and vertical segregation, which refers to low levels of female representation in top positions.
Given the increasing interest from third countries in cooperating with the EU in STI and in the mobility of researchers, the Commission believes that it is important to develop common solutions for common challenges regarding gender inequalities in STI.

That’s where Gender STI comes in.
