Women employed as researchers still remain a minority, but are they catching up? Is their distribution throughout different fields of science changing over time? Are women effectively progressing in their careers to achieve top level positions? Are more women sitting on executive or advisory boards of research organisations?
Since 2003, the Directorate General for Research and Innovation of the European Commission publishes statistics and indicators on women in science and research to provide answers to the above questions, and more.
The She Figures 2012 contains the most recent available data on the involvement of women covering the period from tertiary education to employment and their work-life outlook, in the 27 EU Member States and in the Associated Countries. This compendium is produced in cooperation with Member States, Associated Countries, and Eurostat
