Abstract

This study explores the experience of gender and diversity in research teams in transport and smart mobility related projects funded by the European Commission under Horizon 2020. An analysis of interviews with 14 Principal Investigators revealed that despite the growing awareness about gender and diversity inequalities in academia, bias against underrepresented groups exists. However, variation of experiences calls for intersectional lenses when assessing the problem. Findings reveal the need for changes in EU projects application process, implementation, delivery, and impact evaluation to address gender and diversity gaps.
