How do quality research and innovation benefit from policies promoting gender equality, diversity, and inclusion in the science system? And how can policymakers access evidence about the impact of gender equality policies in R&I to drive continued structural change? These are some of the questions to be addressed in the upcoming Special Session: “Policies for Inclusive Gender Equality in R&I” at the 27th International Conference on Science, Technology, and Innovation Indicators (STI 2023) in Leiden, The Netherlands.


The session will take place on 29 September 2023 at 16:00 h, both face-to-face and online. Its purpose is to foster a dialogue among various stakeholders leading to a consensus on the best approaches for monitoring the inclusion of intersectional gender perspectives in science knowledge-making to support improvements in the quality of outcomes for women, men, and other significant but underrepresented groups.


This event is co-organized by Rachel Palmén, senior researcher at GenTIC and coordinator of the Horizon Europe project INSPIRE, along with Elizabeth Pollitzer (Portia), Kartsen Gareis (Empirica), Lucio Pisacane (Italian National Research Council), Susanne Bührer (Fraunhofer ISI), Helene Schiffbänker (Joanneum Research), and Martina Schraudner (Technical University of Berlin and Fraunhofer Center for Responsible Research and Innovation Fraunhofer Center for Responsible Research and Innovation).
