Gender in Research

Here at METIS, we spend a lot of time talking about and promoting  concrete equal opportunities measures. But just as important as the practical implementation of gender equality measures is research on  gender-related topics. Such research often forms the foundation of how we pursue gender equality, both within and outside of academia.

There are a number of online resources that make gender research freely  available and help you reflect on possible gender issues in your  research area. Most famous is the website project initiated by Prof. Londa Schiebinger,  Standford University gendered innovations. On the the website you can find a wide variety of case studies and analyses on the topics of sex and gender in research and science.

Additionally, below you’ll find a selection of links to open-access repositories of publications, collections of research projects, and other related websites.
