What is EuroGender?

The European Network on Gender Equality (EuroGender) was established following up on EIGE’s mission to become the European knowledge center on gender equality issues, by making available to its key stakeholders and partners the data collected and processed, and knowledge and expertise, in the selected areas of gender equality work, to give  its users access to data, tools, methods and good practices developed and used by the EU and its Member States, collected during the first years of research on equality between women and men in Europe.

What are the benefits of joining EuroGender?

The EuroGender Platform was developed in order to strengthen EIGE’s position as a platform for specialist areas and to facilitate knowledge sharing and communication between various expert communities. The intention behind the creation of EuroGender is to provide a secure environment for specialists from a variety of gender equality areas, enabling them to share knowledge, best practices and resources. It has been developed not only for the publication of documents but it is also meant to encourage authorised users to work together online thanks to a series of collaboration tools.

What is online discussion?

The online discussion is very similar to a blog or an online forum: it is written, every user can decide to make a post, to comment a post or to share a document. For EIGE, online discussion is the occasion to collect feedback on, improve and customise its activities. The online discussion not only helps to integrate variety of perspectives into EIGE’s work but also it is an outstanding interactive event offering information, knowledge, networking, ideas to participants. Participants of online discussions gain access to repository of thematic resources, get insight to most up-to-date EIGE’s activities, and engage in a debate with peers and experts from all over the world.
