Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


There has not been much change in the status of women in physics in Finland during the last three years. Numbers and problems remain the same. Some interesting events have been held, and excellent websites and initiatives have been started. Finland would benefit from nationwide gathering of statistical data on the numbers and salaries of female students and staff at academic institutions and on women working in STEM fields in industry to better quantify the problems. Lack of coordination and resources make it difficult to have long-term programs and to follow the outcomes of the initiatives started.
