Women in academic positions

Women in academic positions

NHH makes targeted efforts to increase the proportion of women among the academic staff.

The proportion of female professors is still low. The proportion of women among adjunct professors has shown a positive trend over several years.

The ambition set for the number of female professors, both permanent and adjunct positions, is demanding to achieve, and determined efforts are made in these categories.

The gender perspective

Gender perspectives in research improve the quality of research in a number of areas. 

The Research Council of Norway and EU/Horizon 2020 emphasise the gender perspective in their consideration of applications. This represents both major opportunities and challenges for the research communities.

NHH works to increasingly include gender perspectives in its research. Faculty can receive support from the Office of Research Administration.
