Ensuring equality is based on verifiable data and figures. For this reason, at the Equality Commission, we carry out, every year, statistical analyzes of the situation within the center and in comparison with the rest of the CSIC. These figures are updated each summer with data from the previous year.

ICMM Stats 2023

ICMM staff

Figure 1 and 2. According to the data on ICMM personnel by category as of June 2023, in all scales, the percentage of men is higher than that of women. In the scale of scientific research personnel, the difference between men and women has decreased due to the internal promotion of more women, but as a result, the difference in the scale of full scientists has increased with respect to the previous year. 

ICMM Staff

The gap between women and men in the number of personnel under doctoral contract has increased, with women dropping from 38% in 2022 to 33% in 2023.

Figure 3 and 4. As in previous years, Figure 3 shows that there is a large difference in the participation of women and men as speakers in seminars and courses. 

In Figure 3 we can see how the participation of women in the direction of doctoral theses is higher than that of men in the period 2018-2022 despite the lower presence of women in scientific scales. However, the completion of theses by women is lower.  


Figure 5. Except for the equality seminars, the participation of men is higher than that of women. In the IFIMAC-ICMM seminars (formerly called Theory Seminars) the difference between male and female opponents is decreasing. 

Research grants

Figure 6. In the year 2022, there are only 3 European projects with ICMM staff and they are all women. Despite this, the money they receive on average in the cumulative period between the years 2018-2022 is much lower (from 744.4 k€ of men to 312.4 k€ of women). This year the number of projects obtained in national and regional calls by ICMM staff as PI has been much higher, increasing more than double compared to 2021 (35 projects as PI men with an average money of 241k€ and 21 projects for women with an average money of 164.9 k€). 

In all types of projects, women receive on average significantly less money than men, a trend that continues over time.
