Final meeting of a collaborative project (2017-2019), funded by the International Council for Science, of eleven major scientific international unions and organizations: findings, discussions, conclusions and recommendations.

Reducing the gender gap is a major challenge for the whole scientific community, in developed as well as developing countries, and concerns everyone, men and women.
The project has concentrated its efforts on three main tasks: the Joint Global Survey with 30,000 respondents (male and female) in more than 130 countries using 8 languages, the Joint Study on Publication Patterns analyzing comprehensive metadata sources of publications of more than 500,000 scientists since 1970, a Database of Good Practices for girls and young women, parents, and organizations.


- Report on the findings and achievements of the three tasks of the  project, globally, by scientific discipline and by geographical zone
- Discuss and evaluate the results of the project.
- Formulate recommendations and discuss new initiatives.
