These issues ar relevant for the research of science since they touch on the important topics of the differentiation of (social) S&T space, scientific socialisation, the scientific career, researchers' performance, and science policy. Their importance for gender studies in S&T arises from the need to go beyond the mere participation of women in science and technology, and to search for various societal, subsystemic, group and individual impacts on women's roles in this sphere. Due to their complementarigy, these issues constitute a certain whole because they include key elements of a thematically integrated scientific picture of gender differentiation in S&T - ranging from the education and recruitment of women and their professional roles and scientific contributions, to social support in achieving gender equality in science. Such empirical insight also has social relevance, and provides a scientific platform to improve gender policy in science and technology"..Bibliographie: Notes bibliogr..Sujet - Nom d'actualité : Femmes en technologie ;Féminisme et sciences ;Politique scientifique ;Femmes dans les sciences
