Skewed pandemic impact
When NIFU, the Nordic Institute for Studies in Innovation, Research and Education, asked scientific staff about their time use in spring of 2020, more than half responded that they spent less time on research than before the pandemic because preparing for teaching was quite time-consuming. The survey reveals clear gender differences: During the pandemic, women spent less time on research and more on teaching than men. Thirty-six percent of men in charge of children said they had far less time for research, compared with 46 per cent of women.
