In 2002, the Helsinki Group on Women in Science, made up of representatives of the Member States and gender experts, published a report on national policies on women in science, which also included the national statistical profiles.

The 'Benchmarking national policies on gender equality in science' report provided an update on the national policies and on the statistical profiles of the 33 countries represented in the Helsinki Group, and it introduced, for the first time, data from the Western Balkans.

This report built on the previous one and evaluated the policies and measures with indicators measuring the presence of women in science. It gave an interesting and original overview on the various national situations and tried to develop a European synopsis.
