In a few pages, the BISA Focus reviews one of the Institute's work themes. The major socio-economic themes and issues of the Brussels Capital Region are addressed in short texts illustrated with graphs, tables and/or maps.

Focus n.26: Studying science and technology, a man's business? (June 2018)

In Belgium, women are under-represented in higher education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. In this respect, Belgium is one of the worst performers in the OECD. Does the Brussels-Capital Region stand out in this respect from other regions? This Focus provides a Brussels analysis of statistics by gender in higher education in order to get a better idea of the representation of women and men in STEM training.
