Vinnova investigates gender equality in innovation

Vinnova, the Swedish government agency for innovation, has awarded 30 million Swedish kroner (€3.5m) on projects aimed at increasing gender equality in R&D.

The projects will test methods, systems and processes that can contribute to greater equality in a variety of innovation areas, such as transport, forestry, film production, materials research and public finance. The University of Technology in Luleå will, for example, focus on gender-driven social innovation and ways to promote gender equality in entrepreneurship.

The research projects, funded under a programme called Needs-driven research for greater equality, are being implemented on behalf of the Swedish government and in consultation with the Swedish Research Council. Achieving more equality within innovation and government agencies is also part of the programme.
