Ongoing projects

In the project "Gender equality and diversity policies in Nordic universities", part of NORDICORE – Nordic Centre for Research on Gender Equality in Research and Innovation, we collect data on gender equality and diversity policies in universities and university colleges in Norway, Sweden and Finland since the 1990s. We seek to map and categorize equality policies on national and institutional levels and analyze the systematic variation across institutions and over time in order to indicate which impact policy has on the gender balance among academic staff.

The project "Doctoral students' innovative and collaborative capability" investigate how independence, creativity, criticality, and communication skills (ICCC) is acquired by doctoral students. The conditions, processes, and outcomes of ICCC within Education and Engineering (EE) amongdoctoral students' in Sweden and South Africa are studied searching for evidence of the impact of policies, educational organisation, leadership, and supervision in relation to the students' development. We also study possible gender differences and how the students' learning outcomes fit the need for doctoral competence in higher education as well as in school and industry.
