She Figures 2018 investigates the level of progress made towards gender equality in research & innovation (R&I) in Europe. It is the main source of pan European, comparable statistics on the representation of women and men amongst PhD graduates, scientists and engineers, researchers throughout their career and academic decision makers. The data also sheds light on differences in the experiences of women and men working in research – such as pay-gap, working conditions and success in obtaining research funds. It also presents the situation of women and men as authors of scientific publications and as patent inventors. A last subset of data focuses on the integration of sex and gender analysis in the content of scientific literature.
This compendium is produced in close cooperation with Member States, Associated Countries, and Eurostat. Methodological insight, including details on data sources, is provided in the She Figures Handbook 2018.
