The center will contribute with high-quality and relevant social science research on gender equality challenges, further develop methods and models for knowledge and network building and research dissemination, with the ambition of promoting research on gender equality in Norway.

CORE is part of the Institute for Social Research and draws on ISF’s long experience in research on gender equality and working life. The centre is funded through the national budget by the Ministry of Children and Equality.

Our research breaks down into five main areas: gender equality and career, the gender-segregated labour market, gender equality policy, the working life of the future and the gender balance in academia.

NORDICOREGender balance in academia became an especially important research area for us when we were awarded NORDICORE – Nordic Centre for Research on Gender Equality in Research and Innovation in 2017, funded by NordForsk. NORDICORE is a five-year Nordic Centre of Excellence with researchers from across the Nordic countries.
