Under GENDERACTION WP5 we were 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 other stakeholders and will be useful in our joint endeavour to promote gender equality in Research & Innovation across Europe.

Horizon Europe Missions
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 and used the opportunity to speak with some of the Mission board members. Following this, in 2020, we decided to prepare short documents addressing gender in the research content for each Horizon Europe Missions. We asked for inputs representatives of two H2020 sister projects Baltic Gender (Oceans) and Gender-SMART (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.
Gender & SDGs in R&I
In summer 2021 we started our work on enhancing knowledge and understanding of gender and SDGs for policy development in European Funds for R&I. Five new policy briefs on gender & SDGs in R&I were created with a focus on Horizon Europe´s clusters. We also prepared a paper to benchmark gender equality and the gender dimension of sustainable development in R&I policy documents in the EU and summarized the existing knowledge on the topic in the Research review. See the policy briefs below, the review and policy paper are available for download on the page dedicated to Gender and SDGs.
