Women and Science 

Scientists are tackling the challenges of sustainable development by spurring innovation and economic growth. But is this sector depriving itself of the potential of women? Although there are encouraging signs, women are under-represented in science and technology, whether in basic research or at higher decisionmaking levels. 


The role of the UIS
Through its biennial survey and partnerships with other statistical organizations, the UIS collects cross-nationally comparable, gender-disaggregated statistics on Research and Experimental Development (R&D) -- by sector, area of research and level of education -- for more than 200 countries and territories. These data are used to support national and international policymaking to promote gender equality in science and technology and to expand the role of women in all fields of scientific research.
