She also presented the advantages of a more diverse science for technology and innovation.
Afterward, Ninon Junca presented RESET and especially WP7 with the GIA and its checklist. There was a discussion with the public on the importance of taking gender into consideration in one’s research, and the obstacles IT researchers can be confronted with, when it comes to this subject.
