“Statistics are central, the word comes from “numbers for the state”, if you wish to have policy, you have to have competent statistics. No statistics, no problem, no policy. You just get gestures. Statistics help identify problems and can monitor the effectiveness of remedies.”

Dr. Hilary Rose, Emeritus Professor, University of Bradford, U.K.

The demand for more and better sex disaggregated data is an integral part of gender mainstreaming, this term is coined for openly taking into account and systematically integrating the respective situations of women and men in policy development, with a view to promoting gender equality. In the specific case of Women and Science, it was given added impetus by a Commission communication, two European Research Counsil resolutions and two European Parliament Resolutions.

Statistics are a useful mean to realize a general picture of the NanoFunPoly network from a gender perspective. Statistics are a way to measure the pulse of a situation, and to check ongoing progress.

In this section you’ll find all the data disaggregated by gender regarding the Nanofun-Poly Network structure and events.
