Gender Actions

Gender is a cornerstone of FP6, not only in the research itself but also in the structure of the research teams. RACE is aimed at breast cancer, a disease that essentially only affects females (males only account for some 1% of annual breast cancer deaths). In terms of the research group structure, RACE has an even distribution of work package leaders (two men and two women). With regards to the different research teams, there is are some more females than men. Since female researchers tend to attract other female researchers to their groups, this aspect is especially positive for correcting the gender imbalance in European research. All participating organizations also have established Gender plans. These rules and regulations will be followed.
