    Case studies of GRC participants policies and practice relating to gender

    equality in research

    The Global Research Council (GRC) commissioned a report on the policies and practice of GRC participants relating to gender equality and the status of women in research. This report contains case studies identified through desk research and interviews for a cross-section of GRC participants across the five GRC regions. It also contains case studies from a selection of other research funders that may be of interest to GRC participants. The case studies are listed by topic, specifically:

    1. Their interest in gender and diversity 2. Their gender related policies 3. Gender specific terms and conditions of funding 4. Gender specific funding schemes 5. Training and development schemes for female researchers 6. Gender-related data collection 7. Career progression of female researchers 8. Gender dimension in research 9. Other aspects of gender equality and diversity.

    Promoting careers for women in the natural sciences and engineering is a priority for the Natural Sciences and

    Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). They are committed to increasing the number of women in

    these fields, facilitating the accommodation of career and family, and nurturing mentorship.

    NSERCs programmes and peer review system are designed to ensure fair treatment of all applicants. They are

    committed to monitoring for gender bias in the evaluation of any submission.

    NSERC believe that all Canadians should have every opportunity to participate fully in science and engineering and

    strongly encourages both women and men to consider entering careers in these fields. NSERC recognises that

    challenges remain in achieving the full participation of women in science and engineering careers. They are

    committed to identifying and eliminating barriers that may exist within their own programmes and working together

    with other stakeholders, when appropriate, to do the same.

    The main objectives are:

    To continue raising awareness about the ERC gender policy among potential applicants

    To improve the gender balance among researchers submitting ERC proposals in all research fields and

    within the ERC teams

    To continue identifying and removing any potential gender bias in the ERC evaluation procedure

    To continue monitoring possible differences in gender specific careers and academic posts, following the

    ERC grants

    To embed gender awareness within all levels of the ERC processes, from creating awareness about the

    ERC to grant signing, while keeping the focus on excellence

    To strive for gender balance among the ERC peer reviewers and other relevant decision making bodies,

    aiming at a minimum participation of the underrepresented gender while taking into account the situation in

    the field of the action. Also, the proportional representation of genders should be at least equal to that of the

    applications by the un
