What is the Gender Paradox in Nordic Countries?

Lotta Strandberg on on the Gender Paradox in Science and Innovation in Nordic Countries

Senior adviser, NordForsk; Associate professor, Bergen University College, Norway.

In this video Strandberg addresses the causes of this phenomenon and the actions taken by Nordforsk in order to tackle it.
