The engagement gap. exploring and mitigating gender differences in university-industry collaborative activities

Valentina Tartari, Ammon Salter

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Recently, debate on women in academic science has been extended to academics' engagement with industry. We suggest that women tend to engage less in industry collaboration than their male colleagues of similar status. We argue that differences are mitigated by the presence of other women and by social support mechanisms.
