Gender & Diversity

GENDER

Gender equality is enshrined as one of the key elements of the European Charter for Researchers and is one of the fundamental principles of the responsible Research & Innovation (RRI) and the HRS4R quality label of excellence scientific talent management. We strongly believe that every individual, irrespective of gender, race, religion, age and other social characteristics, should have the same opportunities when embarking on a scientific career, based on her/his individual talents and disposition. Scientific excellence also involves harnessing the potential of all the talent available and taking measures to facilitate conciliation between personal and professional responsibilities, as well as promoting the scientific career development.

Currently, at IGFAE the gender composition is distributed as follows: IGFAE personnel (only researchers, pre and post docs students) included 74 people, 15 of them are women (20%): 3 of them as research professors (in the Theoretical Physics, Nuclear Physics research areas), 5 post-docs and 7 pre-docs students. Thus, the equal representation of women is not fulfilled in IGFAE, as happens in the majority of physics research.
