Linking Research and Innovation for Gender Equality
The EU is increasingly interested in promoting programmes that empower gender equality at all levels of societal life. Gender equality in the scientific world attracts particular attention, and as a consequence gender equality should be increased in scientific and research institutions. The EU-funded CSA, CALIPER, aims at driving structural change process via the implementation of Gender Equality Plans to make research organizations more gender-equal entities by increasing the number of women researchers in STEM, enhancing their carrier perspectives and adding a gender dimension in research.
The project will engage regional and national innovation environments in active synergies with external stakeholders. It aims at a universal methodology that supports gender equality on a permanent basis and avoids gender discrimination in scientific institutions.
We are the project coordinator and we lead the dissemination, exploitation and evaluation activities, supporting the maximisation of the impact of digital social innovation.
