A need for concerted actions between national/regional programme owners and managers

by Federico Zemborain - published on

All these European, and international programmes, initiatives, projects, policies and reports build up to provide a sound basis for the development of informed collaborative actions between key national and regional programmes, aimed at enhancing the promotion of gender equality in research institutions and the better integration of the gender dimension in research an innovation in Europe.

The situation in European Member States and Associated Countries remains quite heterogeneous, as the local cultural and political contexts have highly influenced the prioritisation of gender equality policies. Today, collaborating to fulfil the potential of women and gender in European research and innovation is more than ever vital to strengthen the competitiveness of Europe, and is a priority goal for achieving the ERA.
