The best news this last week is that we – that is me and colleagues at Western Norway Research Institute, will be part of one of two new Nordic Centres of Excellence!
Our NCoE has this long title:
Beyond the Gender Paradox: Women’s Careers in Technology-driven Research and Innovation in and outside of Academe
Professor Gabriele Griffin from Uppsala University is project leader, Tampere University is a partner, led by Hanna Ylostalo, and I will lead Western Norway Research Institute’s work. Our NCoE will be financed with 20 mill NOK by Nordforsk over the next five years.
The other NCoE will be “Nordic Centre for Research on Gender Equality in Research and Innovation” (NORDICORE), with project leader Professor Mari Teigen, University of Oslo.
Congratulations to both NCoEs!
They will be announced at Gender Summit (GS9) in Brussel next month.
