The fields of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) represent the cornerstone of research and innovation in the health sector in Europe. However, unlike other fields, there is a substantial gender gap at higher levels[1], with the share of female and vulnerable workers dropping significantly beyond PhD level.

Promoting gender equality and inclusion in STEM by supporting early-career researchers helps address the under-representation of women and vulnerable workers in these fields. This can contribute to creating a more diverse and inclusive scientific community, thereby leading to more innovative solutions and better outcomes.
