We have relaunched the genSET website and, along with all the project documents, presentations, briefing documents etc. you can also download over 100 reference documents from the downloads section. genSET is a platform for dialogue between scientists and gender scholars that seeks consensus on actions needed to effectively promote gender equality in science, engineering and technology, both at a participation and research content level. genSET is founded in promoting research excellence through equality. genSET began as a project funded by the European Commission's 7th Framework, of which Portia was the coordinator. We now run it independently at Portia as one of our programmes. The briefing documents, that were prepared for 14 Science Leaders who participated in the genSET Consensus Seminars, provide an excellent introduction to the topic of gender in science.
