MAPWiST

2021 MAPWiST

The Meeting of Asia and Pacific Women in Science and Technology (MAPWiST) is an international policy forum to discuss women's roles in science, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). It focuses on drawing up an action plan towards gender equality in STEM for Asia and Pacific Nations (APNN).

According to various reports, the number of employed women has decreased significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, women have difficulty focusing on their careers due to their childcare responsibilities. However, at the same time, it is a new opportunity to bring attention to talented women, especially in bioscience and technology. In this regard, MAPWiST 2021 will deal with the topic of <Gender Gap and Perception in STEM> from the viewpoint of different cultural perspectives.

Respected all,
Wanted to understand the role of women self-efficacy at the graduation/research level. How useful is it to understand this subjective concept of self-efficacy from the Social Cognitive Theory from the perspective of research in this field.

1)The Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB) is a body under the Department of Science and Technology. Speaking at the virtual event, Science and Technology Minister Harsh Vardhan said globally, just 30 per cent of the world's researchers are women while 18.6 per cent of India's full-time R&D personnel are women.
2) The schemes will promote women researchers in regular service in academic and research institutions to take up R&D at the highest level through two categories of research support: SERB - POWER Fellowship and SERB - POWER Research Grants.
3) In the Indian context women have entered into all disciplines of science & technology. In1975 we had only 800 woman engineers and in 1996 it reached 56,000. Kerala,
Karnataka and Tamil Nadu are leading in most of the areas in terms of women Engineering force. Similarly, the number of woman Ph.D. holders in science in 1950 was
approximately 80 but this number swelled to 3312 in 1993 and today this number is more than 6000. First and foremost, it is a research study on the status of women scientists in different R&D and S&T institutes of Delhi. “As on 1st April, 1998 nearly 3.08 lakhs personnel were employed in the R&D establishment in our country including in house R&D units of public and private sector. 31% were in R&D activities, 32.6% were performing auxiliary activities and rest 36.4% were providing non technical support. There were only 9701 women directly engaged in R&D activities, which is only 9% of the total scientists. Women participation in R&D activities is extremely low compared to their male counterparts(Report by Society for environment & Development submitted to National Commission for Women)

1. Do your country has R&D policy for women scientists?
2. Do your country has State program to support women scientists to commercialize their R&D results
3. What is the rate of women scientists who is the head of R&D project financed by Government.
