We do not often see this in policy documents, as if power were a dirty word. But it is important not to shy away from this because power is, after all, part and parcel of social relations, and we cannot tackle gender equality without attending to power.
Working together to harness national efforts and advance the implementation of gender equality policies in research and innovation in Europe
GENDERACTION is an innovative policy community for the implementation of the gender priority in the European Research Area. It brings together national representatives from EU Member States (MS) and Associated Countries (AC) to foster policy coordination, best practice exchange and mutual learning.
We aim to address gender imbalances in R&I and advance the implementation of the gender priority in the European Research Area, by translating national equality legislation into effective action.
GENDERACTION will support MS and AC by providing networking opportunities for relevant national authorities with the task of pushing for implementation of ERA priority 4. Project activities will take place in cooperation with and in support of the Standing Working Group on Gender Equality in Research and Innovation of the European Research Area and Innovation Committee (ERAC) formerly known as the Helsinki Group on Gender in Research and Innovation.
The project will facilitate the co-creation of knowledge and strategies which will serve as practical tools to implement gender equality in R&I at national level and provide policy advice for impact at EU level.
