What Prof Griffin says about the Gender Summit:
"As labour markets, affected by technologization, marketization, new forms of regionalization and globalization, are shifting, questions of women’s situation in the new technology-driven industries are coming to the fore. The Gender Summit enables this new Nordforsk Excellence Centre, which begins its work in January 2017, to dialogue with other researchers and stakeholders interested in the issue of women in technology-driven careers including in e-health, research and innovation hubs, and the digital humanities."
