Sustainability and gender equality in the high-tech working life of the future

The Nordic Council of Ministers and the Nordic cooperation program Generation 2030 have commissioned NIKK to develop a knowledge base. The documentation will examine how the Nordic countries work to achieve a better gender balance in education and occupations that are in demand in the scientific and technical fields and how this is expected to contribute to sustainability and equality in future labour markets.
