Under GENDERACTION WP5 we are elaborating a Policy Brief Series on Horizon Europe, to bring the key gender issues to the ongoing negotiations.
We are firmly convinced that gender equality policies and the gender dimension in research and innovation are crucial for the future Framework Programme and should be adequately reflected and integrated into the official documents as well as in further discussion, dissemination, and visibility.
We hope that this policy brief series will be of interest to you and your stakeholders and will be useful in our joint endeavour to promote gender equality in Research & Innovation across Europe. For position papers, analysis, and policy briefs on other topics than Horizon Europe go to the page GENDER EQUALITY IN ERA and on a GENDER DIMENSION IN INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION.
In summer 2019 GENDERACTION liaised with Horizon Europe Mission Boards members in order to help in advancing gender equality in the new framework program and in ERA overall. We introduced them to our work in the area of Horizon Europe consultations and policy briefs and other ERA related topics. We were happy to have the opportunity to speak with some of the Mission board members and following this, in 2020, we decided to prepare short documents addressing gender in the research content for each Horizon Europe Missions. We used the opportunity to ask for inputs the representatives of two H2020 sister projects BalticGender (Oceans) and GenderSMART (Soil&Food). To our great joy were the reactions of Mission Board members on these briefs very positive.
All Mission Boards documents can be found in the Gender in Horizon Europe Missions brochure or separately down below.
