Project deliverable Open Access
The present deliverable reports the findings of the cross-country survey regarding gender diversity in R&D teams across Europe and its link to performance indicators carried as part of Work Package 4 of the GEDII project. The empirical evidence is based upon 1,357 complete questionnaire submissions across 159 teams in the following 17 countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
Our preliminary analysis shows that inclusive teams as defined by the Gender Diversity Index do not affect research performance. Regarding gender differences, the models also indicate that there are not statistically significant effect of the share of women on performance – defined as both productivity and impact.
