Call for Research Projects 2022 - Women and Science Chair
The Women and Science Chair at Paris Dauphine-PSL University, aims to mobilize and develop multidisciplinary approaches to analyze the determinants and the impact of the low presence of women in scientific studies and careers (mathematics, computer science, natural sciences and technology). The Women and Science Chair is member of the UNESCO chairs network. It was created with the support of the L'Oréal Foundation, Generali, La Poste, Safran, Talan and Amundi, in partnership with the Institute of Public Policies and Institut Louis Bachelier.
Since 2019, the chair has received 120 proposals and has funded 18 research projects from Europe, North America, South America, Africa and Asia.
In 2022, the Women and Science Chair launches its fourth call for research projects, aimed at the entire academic community without any restrictions in terms of disciplines or in terms of methodology (field studies, modeling, empirical studies, experimental approaches, etc.). Every year, 5 to 7 research projects are selected and receive support of up to € 10,000.
Submitted projects may relate to all the themes of the Women and Science Chair. However, the jury will pay particular attention to the themes considered to be priorities for the 2022 call:
- Impact of the lower presence of women on the way in which science is developed (fundamental research, applied research, technical innovation): design of scientific studies, quality of research and taken directions.
- Gender bias in orientation towards scientific disciplines and careers: role of the different stakeholders (prescribers, teachers, career advisors, HR, managers, etc.), methods to reduce these biases, effectiveness and evaluation of actions and experiences already conducted.
Particular interest will also be given to projects involving researchers from different disciplines and/or involving international analyzes and comparisons.
