Mekelle University recognizes the disproportional participation of women and male professionals in research and innovation for development. It has therefore been taking specific measures such as improving access to employment, offering tailor-madetrainings for female students and staff and allocating funds exclusively for female researchers. Even though such measures have led to some improvement in the percentage of female involvement in research, a serious imbalance remains.
In view of this situation, which is common in many developing countries, Mekelle University, has planned an international conference on Women in Science and innovation for Development.
