Best practice for gender distribution in IST

October 3, 2005

Brussels, 30 Sep 2005

The European Commission has published a call for tenders for a study on best practices for even gender distribution in the EU Member States in the domain of information society technologies (IST).

The scope of the study is to provide the necessary input for further policy making and action at a European level, eventually leading to the preparation of a memorandum of understanding.

The study should identify best practices in both the private and public domain, in major ICT companies and organisations in the 25 EU Member States. The identified best practices will be analysed, and recommendations for potential use across the EU should be made.
