The Committee for Gender Balance and Diversity in Research is appointed by the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research for the period 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2017. This is the fourth committee appointed by the Ministry to promote gender equality in higher education.

The Committee shall support and give recommendations regarding measures that promote the integration of gender balance and diversity activities at universities, university colleges and research institutes, thus helping to increase diversity among the staff and in research. The Committee shall seek to raise the overall level of awareness of problems related to diversity and inclusion in the research system. Its most important task during the period is to address issues of gender and ethnicity. Its activities are to encompass diversity perspectives, including gender perspectives, in research.

Actors and institutions in the higher education sector and research institute sector, as well as the ministries and the Research Council of Norway, may request assistance and advice from the Committee. The Committee itself may also initiate measures and assess the impact of these. The Committee’s primary tasks are to be linked to the areas of responsibility under the purview of the Ministry of Education and Research. International perspectives must also be reflected in the work of the Committee.
