The Gendered Innovations collaborative project:
1) develops methods of sex and gender analysis for scientists and engineers;

The research team has now relesead its website: http://genderedinnovations.stanford.edu/
This is however, just the beginning!
Research around the added value of the gender dimension in research and innovation is carried out by several members of the European Centre for Women and Technology (ECWT) who now are joining forces to scale up the European level research and to align with the US-EU team.
