Female Scientists

Luxembourg worst in EU on percentage of female scientists.

According to Luxembourg Times,

“Luxembourg has the lowest percentage of female scientists and engineers in the whole of the European Union (EU), Eurostat has said.

According to findings published by the EU statistics office, only one-quarter of people working as scientists or engineers in Luxembourg are women.

This is lower than the 40% EU average and positions the Grand Duchy at the bottom of the list of distribution by gender across all member states.

The highest percentage of women working in science and engineering is in Lithuania, with 58%, followed by Bulgaria at 54% and Latvia with 52%.”
