1. Studies find women underrepresented in FP5

Record Control Number : 17698

Date : 2001-11-30

Category : Programme implementation

General Information :

The results of a number of studies carried out on women's participation in the European Commission's Fifth Framework programme (FP5) have shown that women are underrepresented in nearly all areas.

The studies cover six of the sub programmes under FP5 and focused on the number of women carrying out research in EU funded projects, the number of women evaluating research proposals, women's representation within the Commission and whether or not the funded research programmes address women's needs.

The studies recommend a number of actions to improve the position of women in EU research, including a wider dissemination of a reinforced policy message, developing the Commission's capacity to put policy into practice and mainstreaming gender in documentation and programme promotion and the evaluation process.

The recommendations state that 'community policy on equal opportunities and gender mainstreaming should be systematically referred to in all parts of the Programme, from the overall objectives to guidance to proposers and evaluation criteria.' They add that 'Statements about the importance of enhancing women's contribution to science should be given a higher profile, for example, on the Europa and CORDIS websites.'

Those responsible for carrying out the studies agreed that there was a clear commitment by the Commission to implement gender mainstreaming at a political level, but the researchers also concurred that there is no clear strategy on how to put this into practice in programme implementation. 'Institutional commitment has to be backed with organisational procedures calling for technical accountability from programme officers,' states the synthesis report. The studies also recommend that the Commission offers training to staff on gender issues and that more effort is made to employ women at A grade level.

The studies recommend the introduction of gender as a target of research in all work programmes and the establishment of a working group to 'gender-proof' all draft work programmes.

In proposal documents, statements should be included to encourage proposers to undertake gender-sensitive research and guidance should be given to consider the diverse end users of the achieved results and/or developed technology and describe their socio-economic profile, according to the studies. Proposers should also be asked to provide information on how they will ensure the equal participation of women and men in activities and should also be asked to provide sex-disaggregated statistics to reflect the gender balance of project teams. Finally, the studies recommend that 'the partnership database on CORDIS should allow potential partners who register to include their gender expertise as a crosscutting subject in the skills and competencies section.'

The studies found that women's participation in FP5 projects is low. The Information society technologies (IST) study analysed the hours worked by female scientific staff in projects and concluded that female involvement is disproportionately low considering the personnel structure of the organisations concerned. The environment study found that the number of women partners in proposals is under 20 per cent in all key actions. The Innovation and SME programme has the highest number of female coordinators according to the study, recording 20 per cent, whereas the IST programme has the lowest with 11 per cent.

Research also focused on women's participation in external advisory groups, the bodies providing the Commission with independent advice concerning the content and direction of FP5 research. The Commission has made an effort to promote a more systematic collection of data on the participation of women in both advisory groups and decision making bodies, but as this process is still in its early stages, a thorough analysis is not yet possible. Three of the studies concluded however that available information shows the Commission to have reached its target of 40 per cent female representation in external advisory groups. This target was introduced as part of the Commission's gender mainstreaming policy. Both the Human potential and Environment and sustainable development programmes met the target.

On the programme committees, which consist of delegates from Member States and Associated States and assist the Commission with FP5 management and implementation, the studies found the number of female participants varied considerably across the programmes. Some studies looked at this in more detail and found that female experts have far more advisory roles than decision making roles.

More positive conclusions were drawn from analyses of women's participation in monitoring panels, which are responsible for producing reports on the progress of programme implementation. An effort by the Commission to select women for some of the panels has led to a female representation of between 20 and 50 per cent.

Such positive results are unfortunately not the case where expert evaluation panels are concerned. A lack of women in the pool of experts, practical constraints (the fact that meetings are held in Brussels and last several days) and constraints due to the selection practices mean that women are poorly represented here. Constraints due to selection practices include previous experience, giving preference to previously selected candidates and the requirement to rotate expert evaluation panels.

Regarding the gender balance of the European Commission staff, the studies found that strong vertical segregation is present in most of the programmes. Notable progress has been made in some programmes however, with 40 per cent of A grade posts in the Human potential programme now held by women. The Quality of life study found strong vertical segregation of women among A grade staff and some evidence of horizontal segregation, where women and men are clustered in different research areas or disciplines.

The research detected a concern that the potential male-dominated culture of the Commission services responsible for the programme implementation could impede awareness raising of gender issues. 'These issues need to be promoted from the early stages of the programme such as in the production of promotional materials and information days. Moreover, a programme with a masculine public face inherently discourages female participation,' states the studies' synthesis report.

All of the studies formed the conclusion that the gender dimension is inadequately addressed in FP5's work programmes and that gender specific research, or research about women, is not generally included as a topic within the work programmes. The Environment study notes that of the 2125 proposal abstracts assessed, only one includes the word 'women', although the Human potential study found that eight per cent of the proposals it assessed had a primary research focus on gender.

Along with the other programmes, FP5's Growth programme, which did not carry out a gender impact assessment study is attempting to raise the profile of women in science and has seen some positive results. Whilst women only made up one per cent of project coordinators in FP4, the proportion has increased to eight per cent in FP5. Representatives from the Growth programme point out that industrial research has traditionally been restricted to a male dominated environment with an emphasis on physical strength. The focus has now shifted however to problem solving with an emphasis on socio-economic impacts, which is offering equal opportunities to both men and women.

2. ESA scientists help cancer diagnosis with new X-ray camera

Record Control Number : 17697

Date : 2001-11-30

Category : Miscellaneous

General Information :

European Space Agency (ESA) scientists developing devices to capture X-rays from objects in space have designed a camera that could become a powerful new weapon in the fight against cancer.

Members of the Science Payloads Technology division of the research and science support department, at ESA's science, technology and engineering research centre (ESTEC) in the Netherlands, have developed a small, lightweight X-ray camera that can aid cancer diagnosis and be used for continuous monitoring during operations.

Effective treatment of cancer relies on the early detection and removal of cancerous cells. At this stage, the cancer is very hard to spot, and current medical equipment can give doctors only limited information on tissue health. In the case of breast cancer, cancer cells tend to congregate in the lymph nodes, from where they can rapidly spread throughout the rest of the body. A surgeon must perform an exploratory operation to try to identify and remove the diseased tissue. If identification is not possible, the doctor may be forced to remove the whole of the lymphatic system, which causes serious disruption to the body's hormonal balance.

The new camera works by picking up images from a radioactive tracer injected into or near the breast tumour. The small size of the camera makes it possible to continuously image the cancerous tissue during surgery.

'There is no photography involved in the camera we envisage. It will be completely digital, so the surgeon will study the whole lymphatic system and the potentially cancerous parts on his monitor. He then decides which parts he removes,' says Dr Tone Peacock, Head of the Science Payloads Technology division.

The discovery was made while the ESA team were developing a camera which could create images from high energy X-rays, as many celestial objects give out large quantities of X-rays but little visible light. ESA's XMM Newton X-ray telescope, currently in orbit, observes only low energy X-rays.

For the first time, the ESTEC researchers have produced a microchip capable of detecting hard X-rays instead of visible light. Rather than silicon, the new chip is made from a chemical compound called epitaxial gallium arsenide. This material, developed under the ESA leadership of Dr Marcos Bavdaz, has successfully completed extensive tests at German X-ray test facility HASYLAB.

Having made the basic camera sensor, the next stage will be to develop a system to send the images to television screens in real time. 'We are developing that now with our industrial partners, such as Metorex, a research and development company in Finland,' says Peacock.

Once ESA has developed the technology to make the X-ray camera work, its task is done. The industrial partners will take over to produce a camera for medical use. ESA will adapt its design to provide European astronomers with a new view of the Universe.

3. UKAEA upgrades research power of JET fusion experiment

Record Control Number : 17706

Date : 2001-12-03

Category : Miscellaneous

General Information :

Joint European Torus (JET) , the world's largest and most powerful nuclear fusion machine, is to restart operations after eight months of work by the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) to upgrade its power as a research tool.

JET is one of the lynchpins of the European fusion programme, which aims to harness the power of nuclear fusion to create safe and environmentally friendly energy. It is the only machine capable of operating with the fuel mixture that will be used in a commercial fusion power station.

Since January 2000, the JET experiment has been operated by UKAEA under the European fusion development agreement (EFDA) . Frank Briscoe, UKAEA's fusion operations director, said the work 'included the most important improvements to the JET device since 1998.'

The JET experiment has also become an increasing focus for European cooperation. The machine draws scientists and engineers from associated laboratories across Europe, as well as from associated and third countries, to carry out experiments in the integrated European fusion programme.

The main aim of JET is to enable study of the conditions and dimensions needed in a power plant. It will be succeeded by the internationally-funded machine ITER (the international thermonuclear experimental reactor) , followed by a demonstration fusion power plant. The next JET operating session is due to start in March 2002.

Under EFDA, a new JET implementing agreement has been set up to use the JET facilities until at least the end of next year. The new agreement replaces the JET joint undertaking established in 1978 to construct and operate JET.

4. Astronomers use ESO instruments to identify massive black hole in Milky Way

Record Control Number : 17707

Date : 2001-12-03

Category : Miscellaneous

General Information :

Astronomers working at the European southern observatory (ESO) have discovered a massive black hole in a star system within the Milky Way galaxy.

The object has 14 times more mass than the Sun, making it the heaviest known stellar black hole in the galaxy. The observation has raised speculation on how stellar black holes of this size form.

An international team of astronomers identified the black hole, almost 40,000 light years from Earth, using the ISAAC instrument on the ESO's VLT 8.2-m ANTU telescope. The astronomers also found a low-mass star, known as a 'donor star,' that feeds the black hole by means of a steady flow of stellar material.

It was by analysing the movement of this star as it revolves around the black hole that the astronomers were able to estimate the mass of the hole.

5. Commission project gives astronomers access to 'digital sky'

Record Control Number : 17730

Date : 2001-12-06

Category : Miscellaneous

General Information :

A European Commission-funded project, launched in November 2001, is opening up the 'digital sky' to astronomers by providing web access to vast databanks of astronomical information from the world's observatories.

The Astrophysical Virtual Observatory (AVO) enables astronomers to 'put the Universe online' by seamlessly combining data from ground and space-based telescopes across the full range of wavelengths, from high-energy gamma rays to radio waves. The information provided by AVO will allow astronomers to make groundbreaking observations, pinpointing events such as supernovae and predicting possible asteroid threats to Earth.

Astronomers have long struggled with the overwhelming amount of data accumulating in digital archives from observatories the world over. The growth rate is fast and hundreds of terabytes of data are already available to scientists. The AVO will allow astronomers to analyse the huge amount of information at their disposal.

The European Commission is providing four million euro of funding for the three-year AVO project under the 'Access to research infrastructures' element of the Fifth Framework programme's 'Improving human potential' programme. AVO will provide software tools to allow astronomers to access the multi-wavelength data archives over the Internet, giving them the capability to resolve fundamental questions about the Universe. Equivalent searches of the 'real' sky would be both costly and time-consuming in comparison.

The National Science Foundation in the USA is also funding its own National Virtual Observatory (NVO) . The AVO project team has formed a close alliance with the NVO and both teams have representatives on their counterpart committees. The aim is to work towards the creation of a global virtual observatory.

The AVO involves six partner organisations led by the European southern observatory (ESO) in Munich, Germany: ESA, the UK's ASTROGRID consortium, the Centre de données astronomiques at the University Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg, France, the TERAPIX astronomical data centre at the Institut d'astrophysique in Paris, France and Jodrell Bank Observatory of Manchester's Victoria University in the UK.

In a separate development, the councils of the ESO and the UK's PPARC (particle physics and astronomy research council) have endorsed the terms for UK membership of the ESO. The formal accession procedure will now begin in the UK and accession is expected to take place in July 2002.

ESO council President Dr Arno Freytag welcomed the development. 'This is a most important step in the continuing process of European integration,' he said, emphasising that 'the benefits will be mutual.'

ESO is the main European organisation for astronomy, with two major observatories in the Chilean Atacama desert. The UK will become the ESO's tenth member state, following in the footsteps of Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden and Switzerland.

6. ESA and ESO contribute to first observation of dark matter object

Record Control Number : 17731

Date : 2001-12-06

Category : Miscellaneous

General Information :

Astronomers using the NASA-European space agency (ESA) Hubble Space Telescope and the European southern observatory's (ESO's) Very Large Telescope have observed a dark matter object for the first time

The astronomers used the instruments to observe a MACHO (massive compact object) microlens, a dwarf star that gravitationally focuses light from a star in another galaxy.

The result goes some way towards solving the 'riddle' of dark matter by adding weight to the theory that a large proportion of it exists as small, faint stars in galaxies such as our Milky Way.

The nature of dark matter is one of the fundamental puzzles in modern astrophysics. Observations of galaxies have revealed that no more than a quarter of the total amount of matter in the Universe consists of the normal atoms and molecules that make up our environment on Earth. Of this 'normal' matter, only about a quarter emits the radiation observed from stars and hot gas. Therefore a large fraction of the matter in our Universe is dark and of unknown composition.
