Gender in EU funded Research

Interested in what gender-sensitive research practically means?

These one-day training sessions are intended for anybody interested in rendering research gender-sensitive: researchers, project managers, National Contact Points, expert evaluators.
The sessions will provide practical guidance on how the gender dimension can be integrated in research, using clear examples of how gender is relevant to existing FP7 projects.

Programme of the day:

– The morning is devoted to a general introduction to gender in research.
– In the afternoon, there are two parallel sessions in which two specific research fields are addressed with practical exercises (cases). When registering for training, please indicate which afternoon session you wish to attend.

Training sessions will take place at different locations across Europe, and will run till October 2010. Check this webpage for regular updates on the calendar of planned events.
