Abstract [en]

When bringing forward discussions of gender, we tend to go into a practice of counting heads i.e. how many women are present in which functions, especially in sectors of technology and engineering. Rarely is gender issues seen as knowledge and technology generating. In the paper two cases are introduced, one from Uganda and one from Sweden, in order to illustrate what kind of value addition certain academic activities can have starting in gender related issue. The value addition in more concrete terms includes substantial contribution to an ICT/GIS Centre in Arua district in Uganda as well as a new university campus at a technical university in Sweden. Epistemological comments are presented on technoscientific gender research fostering and trying to advance our understanding of knowledge production in technology and engineering.
