ABSTRACT
In Norway, the number of female physics professors has been increasing moderately over the past 5 to 10 years, and a focus of university leadership has been on the advancement of women to full professors. Recruitment of women to studies in physics is still a matter of concern, in absolute as well as relative numbers. To recruit students to the fields of science, universities have sought to increase interest for science in general. In this report, we present developments regarding the status of women in physics in Norway, particularly the recent recruitment of women to physics studies.
