Various national programmes, policies and funding schemes have been developed in recent years in a number of Member States and associated countries. Several GENDER-NET ERA-NET partners, including the French CNRS and MENESR, the Spanish MINECO, the Norwegian RCN, the Swiss WBF, the British ECU, the Irish HEA (IRC), are at the forefront of this effort. They bring together national initiatives and programmes – described on partners’ pages – addressing either, or both, gender equality in research institutions through structural change, and the integration of sex/gender analysis in research contents and programmes.
