Gender disparities limit chances for women PhD students training to be new inventors, says new research

In the innovation economy, individuals with STEM Ph.D.s are a critical source of human capital, with nearly 60% of Ph.D.s in STEM fields—such as engineering, chemistry and biology—being employed outside of universities. These students are increasingly contributing to commercial science through patenting. New research from MIT Sloan School of Management and Copenhagen Business School has investigated the training of these Ph.D. students to better understand the pipeline and preparation of new inventors.
