Promotion of Gender Equality at EURAXESS and EQUAL-IST

On February 28th, 2019 the 2nd Webinar on Establishing Synergies between the EQUAL-IST project and the EURAXESS initiative and network took place. The webinar was focused on the promotion of gender equality within the EURAXESS initiative and the EQUAL-IST project. The webinar was targeted at EURAXESS members and managers, as well as the members of the EQUAL-IST project consortium.

The webinar objective was twofold:

First, the webinar participants could gain insights into the promotion and support of gender equality within the EURAXESS TOP III and EURAXESS TOP IV projects. Here Brigitte Ernst (University of Liège, Research and Development Department, Belgium; EURAXESS Services and HRS4R) presented the initiatives promoting gender equality done within the EURAXESS TOP III project. Afterwards, Dimitrios Sanopoulos (National Coordinator of the Greek EURAXESS Service Network) provided an overview of the tasks foreseen within the EURAXESS TOP IV project.

Abstract:

European Research Area (ERA) objectives on gender equality have stressed the importance of promoting the results of the European Union (EU) projects that implement Gender Equality Plans (GEPs) through the EURAXESS network. EQUAL-IST (“Gender Equality Plans for Information Sciences and Technology Research Institutions”) is a project funded within the EU Horizon 2020 Framework Programme aimed at introducing structural changes at the six participating Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and Information Sciences and Technology (IST) research institutions to enhance gender equality. The project is focused on the design and implementation of tailored GEPs, where the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers (Charter & Code) that support gender equality were acknowledged and followed. The results have been presented, among others, in the article “Gender Equality Plans at ICT / IST Research Institutions in Alignment with the C&C Principles” published on the EURAXESS website.

Target Audience:

The webinar was targeted at both the EURAXESS network members and managers and the EQUAL-IST project consortium members.
