The share of funds for applicative projects by gender of the young project leader or other project leader in 2016

A special category is represented by applicative projects run by young doctors (a maximum ten active years have passed since the project leader received the doctorate degree). These researchers receive special attention in public calls for project co-funding.

Among young leaders, 28,6% are women and 71,4% are men. Among other leaders, 30,7% are women and 69,3% are men.
