National Contact Centre for Gender & Science (NKC - gender a věda)
Established in 2001, the National Contact Centre for Women and Science contributes to building gender equality in science and research.We stimulate debates and petition for measures and steps to eliminate discrimination and gender inequalities in science. We urge action from responsible institutions, and offer solutions to improve the professional advancement of women. We carry out analyses to address the asymmetrical distribution of power between men and women in science and in society in general. We raise awareness about gender issues in science and give visibility to women researchers and their work. We support and stimulate women’s cooperation in science. We are integrated in international networks (European Platform for Women Scientists and ATGender) and contribute to the development of science policies. We participate in international projects and cooperate with similarly orientated support and research organizations abroad, especially in Europe. We are located in the sociology of knowledge, feminist theories and science studies, gender studies and public policy.
