    Abstract

    The TRansforming Institutions by Gendering contents and Gaining Equality in Research (TRIGGER) was a project designed to understand the underrepresentation of women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine (STEMM) subjects in academia, and the institutional changes needed. TRIGGER was an applied five-country research project funded by the European Union which ran from 2014 to 2017, and Birkbeck College (University of London) was allocated €400,000 to research and address the nature and causes of underlying gender inequality in STEMM fields. In 2014 nine actions were drawn up to drive the project, designed to reinforce Birkbeck College’s 2012 Bronze Award from Athena Swan (a scheme that recognises UK universities committed to gender equality in STEMM), and the Aurora programme (a leadership scheme devoted to women in UK higher education).
