Moedas in Prague on gender equality in science


European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation Karlos Moedas visited Prague in June. In a discussion titled What can Europe offer Czech science? also addressed the position of women in science and the benefits of diversity. In his speech, for example, he said that concrete measures need to be taken to increase the number of women in science. According to Moedas, scientific institutions and member states should be more active in promoting gender equality and diversity (source, video in Czech only).
