The Initiative on Gender Balance in Senior Positions and Research Management (BALANSE) seeks to promote gender balance at the senior level in Norwegian research through new knowledge, learning and innovative measures.
The Research Council of Norway is announcing the first call for proposals under its new Initiative on Gender Balance in Senior Positions and Research Management (BALANSE).
For the first time ever, the national budget includes dedicated funding to the Research Council of Norway’s initiative on gender balance in research management. The allocation amounts to NOK 7 million.
There is a significant imbalance between the genders in senior scientific positions and research management. Today 78 per cent of university professors in Norway are men.
