Differences in start-up grants

Verschillen in startsubsidies

Male researchers at the start of their careers received more than twice as much (median: $889,000) from their employer to set up their research programme compared to female applicants (median: $350,000). These differences could not be explained by differences in education, years of experience, or characteristics of the institution where they worked.
