Monitoring progress towards Gender Equality in the FP6

According to Decisions of the European Parliament and Council, the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) should strive to promote gender equality in scientific research. This concerns the promotion of women scientists and, where it is relevant, the integration of the gender dimension in the research agenda. To monitor progress on gender equality and gender mainstreaming in specific FP6 programmes and measures, the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research commissioned five studies covering specific FP6 programmes and measures. These were carried out between 2005 and 2007.
