The TRansforming Institutions by Gendering contents and Gaining Equality in Research (TRIGGER) was a project to understand the underrepresentation of women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine (STEMM) subjects in academia, and the institutional changes needed.

The TRIGGER project’s final report, detailing the extensive achievements of the project, is now available to download.
