A GENDER STUDY OF RESEARCH IN THE UNIVERSITY OF GRANADA

A. Arcos, A. López-Montoya, M.M. Rueda

University of Granada (SPAIN)
The women position in university is equilibrated in recent years. The gender distribution of the students and staff of services increasingly reflected the population equality. In teaching staff, there is also a trend towards greater representation of women, especially in the lower levels of the hierarchy.

Research in Spain is developed in a large part by the university teaching staff. Hopefully representation of women on the faculty of a university research remains at the same university.

This paper presents a study of the research groups and projects of the University of Granada broken down by gender. This study shows a difference in research projects and contracts with companies favorable to men. This inequality is shown both in the number of projects and contracts, as in the budget amount of these that is significantly highest among men.

The result of this study shows that research in the University of Granada remains a mostly male work. Because this analysis, we study the possible causes of this result, to try to find a solution to this difference in a not too distant future.
