Gendered Innovations Report
In 2013, the European Commission published its report “Gendered Innovations - How Gender Analysis Contributes to Research”. This report was written by an Expert Group “Innovation through Gender” which was set up in February 2011 by the European Commission. The work was initiated at Stanford University in July 2009 and incorporated in the work programme Science in Society of the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development.
The aim of the Expert Group was to provide scientists and engineers with practical methods for sex and gender analysis and to develop case studies of how sex and gender analysis lead to new perspectives in research. The case studies offer new insights in the areas of basic science, engineering and technological development, environment, food and nutrition, health and medicine, transport as well as communicating science. These fields are all priority fields of the current European Framework Programme Horizon 2020.
