Equality and Status of Women in Research. Survey Report for the Global Research Council 2016 Annual Meeting
The survey report was commissioned by Research Councils UK (RCUK) and the Science and Engineering Research Board of India (SERB) as a contribution to the Global Research Council (GRC) Annual Meeting in Delhi, 26-27 May 2016. As funders of research, GRC participants have the opportunity to influence the development of the research landscape by adopting and implementing policies which aim to redress gender imbalances and inequalities in research. The report provides an overview of the gender equality policies and practice of a selection of GRC participants, identified through a combination of desk based analysis and interviews. It also presents a summary of practice in each of the five GRC regions: Africa, Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe and Middle East/North Africa (MENA).
