Abstract [en]

This paper reports on some of the findings from the project “PROMETEA – Empowering Women Engineers’ Careers in Industrial and Academic Research”. The project is a research project funded by the European Commission in the 6th Framework Programme: “Structuring the European research area, Science and Society”, area: “Women and Science”. Researchers from thirteen countries work together on the project. The aim of the project is to develop a better understanding of gender issues in engineering and technology research settings, in order to propose effective measures and recommendations to empower women engineers’ careers in academic and industrial research in Europe. The paper draws primarily on the Swedish material in an analysis of factors which promote or hinder women engineers’ career development. The primary concern of the paper is to explore the impact of gender equality policies and practices on women’s careers.
