The booklet is published by Kilden genderresearch.no, an independent sub-unit of the Research Council of Norway. Kilden has a national responsibility for promoting and disseminating gender research and research with gender perspectives.
Over the last few years, the gender dimension in research content has received increased attention. One reason is that gender perspectives improve the quality of research and innovation. According to the European Commission and several national research funding institutions, the gender dimension should be included in research when relevant.
However, what does the gender dimension mean? When is it relevant? In this booklet we address researchers and others in the research community who are curious about what the gender dimension entails. By presenting case studies from a variety of research fields, such as health and quality of life, food, agriculture and fisheries, energy, transport, environment
and climate, and safe societies, we aim to inspire researchers and others who want to learn more about how to work with the gender dimension in research.
