Dear all, I have to leave now the discussion but I want to congrat Catarina and Lut and the amazing work they have done for conceptualising this tool and for including, as some other already pointed out, a good balance of practical and theoretical aspects.

Being a friendly and clear tool, it does not fall into a "technocratic", toolkit oriented stream, which is unfortunately quite common today for gender issues. On the contrary it shows the complexity of gender structural change.

Congratulations once again, and thank you for counting on us!

 Dear All, 

I am briefly summarising some my suggestions send to Catarine. Some of them is overlaping with those suggested by you and this allows to feel me well in the company of social scientists:)

  1. Clearly define to whom is addressed the tool ;
  2. More attenion should be given to the specifics of the research organizations and consequently to the motivation to start institutional changes in those organizations;
  3. The posibility to find in brief explained  the latest updates in the policy and mainly on the new scientific knowledge not only on gender but also in other concerned fields (with links);
  4. Make the possibility to see information and how deep it is presented not reading all text  (somthing simmilar to the content of the portal);
  5. Guidance  lacks completeness without role and assistans of stakeholders;

I think that the first and the last points are very important for gender equality in research and need attention from science policy makers 

 I rthink that

Hello all, 

I could not participate in the afternoon. So I want to send my comments now: 

+ (what I found positive)
Short definition + furthter readings
Arguments
Stakeholders + Staff and groups to copperate with them

- (what I found too complex/not so easy) 

Wording: e.g. Gender Equality Plan – Gender Equality Action Plan etc. rather complex

Definition of Gender – Women and Men/ Transgender etc. is not mentioned.
