The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE), in cooperation with the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Research and Innovation, invites you to participate to the online discussion “Integrating gender equality in universities and research institutions”, taking place on EuroGender, 20 October, 10.00 am - 4.00pm CET.

EIGE’s gender mainstreaming programme focuses on a sectorial approach to gender equality.

Within the area of research, It is planned to establish an online tool on gender equality plans for universities and research institutions. The online tool will be made accessible via EIGE’s online gender mainstreaming platform in 2016.

In the process of developing this tool, EIGE wishes to involve experts and stakeholders who have been or are currently involved in setting up, implementing and/or evaluating gender equality initiatives in universities and research institutions.

If you have such expertise and experience or are interested in the process, we invite you to join this online discus:

  • share key success factors and challenges you have experience,
  • assist in the definition of criteria for identifying and selecting good practices in this field,
  • brainstorm about users’ needs and any requirements you consider necessary for such an online tool.

Gender experts from EIGE and Yellow Window (EIGE’s Contractor for the project) will be facilitating the online discussion and will be answering further questions related to the project.

At the end of the online discussion, the transcript containing all comments will be uploaded on the page. Two weeks later, the report of the online discussion, clustering comments/recommendations per topic, will be made available on EuroGender as well.

Once the online discussion starts, registration on this event page is not possible.  If you are already a registered member of EuroGender, you can reach the actual page of the online discussion that you can access here
