She Figures 2015 investigates the level of progress made towards gender equality in research & innovation
(R&I) in Europe. It is the main source of pan-European, comparable statistics on the representation of
women and men amongst PhD graduates, researchers and academic decision-makers. The data also
sheds light on differences in the experiences of women and men working in research – such as relative
pay, working conditions and success in obtaining research funds. It also presents for the fist time the
situation of women and men in scientifi publication and inventorships, as well as the inclusion of the
gender dimension (1) in scientifi articles.
