About the publication

In 1998 the European Commission's Research Directorate-General set up an expert group on women in science and charged the members with the task of preparing a report on women in science policy in the European Union.

Growing concern had been expressed at the lack of women not only among career scientists but also among those who shape scientific policy. The term science here is used broadly and includes the social sciences, engineering, technology and computing.

This report is the outcome of the group's work. It is intended to feed in to the growing debate on the subject at institution, Member State and EU level as well as further afield.
