A primary objective of the EC Agenda is gender equality promotion in research and innovation, and a corresponding regulatory framework to tackle perplexing structural barriers. In this direction, the gender dimension is a dynamic concept, introduced to examine gender norms and stereotypes among researchers, as well as evolving gender roles. What is more, in the new Horizon Europe funding programme, the Commission will require gender equality plans in the form of official documents, with concrete measures and targets on gender balance in leadership and decision making, gender equality in recruitment and career progression, integration of the gender dimension into research and teaching content, as well as measures against gender-based violence, including sexual harassment, which will be an essential factor to consider when evaluating new proposals.
