Gender Equality Plans

We are promoting gender equality on structural and cultural levels for seven European organisations working in research and innovation. With a focus on fixing the system, not the women, we assess gender imbalances, design gender equality plans (GEPs) for sustainable change, and monitor and evaluate the progress we make. Towards gender equality in research!

This page links to our Gender Equality Plans as they become publically available.
