(E)QUALITY 2009 – Nordic conference on gender equality in research

Quality in research is important. But what do we actually mean by quality? How can it be measured and strengthened? And what role does gender play in this? The relation between gender equality and quality in research will be the main theme at the conference (E)QUALITY 2009, which is held in Oslo, March 23-24.
