Women, research and universities: Pursuing excellence in research without loss of talent

last modified Mar 14, 2013 03:20 PM

Not enough women opt for a career in research and too many drop out as they advance in an academic career. LERU universities view this as a loss of talent in the workplace, a loss of diversity in society and a loss for universities' pursuit of excellent research and new knowledge creation. The League of European Research Universities (LERU) released a paper in July 2012 with a commitment and with recommendations on what universities and others can do to make research careers attractive—for women and for men. The paper can be downloaded HERE.
