Report: What science is missing when women are missing
A new report features examples of novel approaches to supporting women’s career progression, especially in the early stages. Titled From Ideas to Markets: the Gender Factor, it shows how gender can make research more meaningful and open up new markets for scientific knowledge. It was developed by Portia Ltd with funds from the Elsevier Foundation’s New Scholars program to support discussion at the2012 European Gender Summit, held at the European Parliament in Brussels. Based in the UK, Portia is a nonprofit organization that aims to help women and men have the same opportunities for engagement and advancement in science.
