Pilot experiences for improving gender equality in research organisations’ — R&I PEERS


The R&I PEERS project aims at creating and validating pilot experiences aiming at disrupting the gender-biased approach and those unconscious rules that limit the participation and the career of women in research and innovation in the Mediterranean Area. To do so, we will leverage on the synergies of structured dialogues and women’ empowerment through skills and entrepreneurial perspective of research and innovation.

The project objectives are:

1. Implementation and improvement of 7 GEPs in R&I related organisations;

2. Smooth the gap of gender representation in decision-making and research-performing processes;

3. Maximise the impact and the efficacy of gender content into the research programmes.

The proposal aims at realizing and providing a double vision of equality (increasing the numbers of women in decision-making positions throughout the R&I system will reduce the waste of European talents) and opportunity (providing support to the R&I entrepreneurship based on more effective deployment female human capital, hence offering an important competitive advantage for strengthening the scientific endeavor). Dissemination and exploitation plans of the project results will then ensure the sustainability of the action after the ending of the project.
