EURLO and UNICA Research webinar promoted by Comenius University in Bratislava

Previous research and innovation framework programmes have established or flagged “gender” and gender equality in projects, however the actual impact has never achieved its full potential. Certain formality has always been the optic towards gender in project proposals and actions.

The European Commission’s Union of Equality (2020) finally appeals to concrete actions. The new European Research Area (2020) requires developing concrete plans to promote gender equality, as well as diversity and inclusiveness in science, research and innovation. In this sense, the Horizon Europe Framework Programme establishes Gender Equality Plans (GEP) as an eligibility criterion for public bodies, HEIs, and research offices.

The aim of the webinar is to share challenges and lessons learned of the implementation process of GEP among the UNICA members, especially research support managers and administrators, HR managers, and experts. Invited speakers discussed the elements of GEP, the difficulties of the drafting process, and the potential impact. 

Speakers:

Zuzana Lisoňová, Head of Project Office, Comenius University in Bratislava

Julia Kubisa, Assistant Professor at the Institute of Sociology and Anna Grędzińska, Equal Opportunities Chief Specialist, University of Warsaw
