CORE – Centre for Research on Gender Equality conducts research on gender equality, with particular emphasis on gender equality challenges in working life. We produce high-quality research that is socially and politically relevant.
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. CORE’s project portfolio also includes research projects on gender equality issues funded by other Clients.
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.
Gender 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.
