Academies as sponsors of research and as evaluators of research institutes
  • Establishing criteria
    When performing reviews of research institutes, panels should preferably consist of both women and men. Working conditions of women researchers need to be among the evaluation criteria.
  • Gender in scientific research
    Academies that fund research must require that the researcher considers the differentiated impact of the work on women and men and ensures that the results are not biased by the sex of the researcher. Evaluation panels are required to assess whether gender issues have been adequately addressed. Granting organizations must analyze whether their funding allocations are distributed to women and men researchers without bias.
