Abstract

The Transforming Institutions by Gendering Contents and Gaining Equality in Research (TRIGGER) project at Birkbeck is part of a five-country European consortium that champions the role of female academics in scientific disciplines. The project tests a blueprint designed to raise the status of women in scientific and technological organisations such as universities. Its nine actions will identify barriers to equality in the workplace and help “fix the system” so that gender equality is mainstreamed in decision-making processes. The rationale is that more equality will lead to enhanced career possibilities. These include better leadership opportunities with more women becoming entrepreneurial in commercialising their research.
