Less than one third of scientists and engineers are women in Luxembourg (25%), Finland (28%), Hungary (31%), Austria (32%) and Germany (33%).

According to the Eurostat survey using figures from 2016, 60 percent of scientists and engineers in the EU are men, while just 40 percent are women.

According to a United Nations study of 14 countries, women are far less likely to obtain a Bachelor’s degree, Master’s or PhD in a science-related field.

Less than 30 percent of scientific researchers worldwide are women, according to the UN.

Women are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathmatics at both graduate and research levels. 

In 2016, from the 1.7 million scientists and engineers in the EU, 60% were men and 40% women. Men were particularly overrepresented in manufacturing (83% of scientists and engineers in manufacturing were male), while the services sector was more balanced (55% male and 45% female).

However, in three EU Member States, the majority of scientists and engineers were women: Lithuania (58% female), Bulgaria (54%) and Latvia (52%).

Less than one third of scientists and engineers were women in Luxembourg (25%), Finland (28%), Hungary (31%), Austria (32%) and Germany (33%).

This news item marks the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, celebrated on 11 February.
