Description of impact

The research memorandum ’Gender balance initiatives in research funding: Barriers and possible measures to increase the share of women within natural science and technology’ was written on commission from the Villum Foundation, which contacted researchers at EDGE to deliver a report on the issue. This research memorandum presents six promising practices and short summaries of existing experiences regarding what works in addressing the gender gap in research funding. The Villum Foundation commissioned the report in order to improve their own practices and launch new measures.
