This report includes the findings of EPSRC’s detailed analysis of gender disparity across its grant portfolio. It links grant size by value to award rates across standard grants and funding opportunities.

The aim of the report is to share the findings with the wider engineering and physical sciences community, raise awareness of the trends that EPSRC sees as a funder, and to promote discussion in the community to support positive changes across the sector.
