GENDERACTIONplus under the auspices of the Belgian Presidency of the Council of the EU

Funded by Horizon Europe (grant agreement no. 101058093), GENDERACTIONplus contributes to advancing gender equality in the European Research Area through mapping and benchmarking policies; identifying emerging policy solutions through policy dialogue and mutual learning; building capacities for policy implementation; building buy-in among stakeholder groups and taking action to advance policy implementation at the national and European levels. Gender equality in the European Research Area is fostered through the work of two project Communities of Practice (CoPs) — policy CoP and CoP of Research Funding Organisations (RFOs).

The conference will bring together relevant stakeholders to discuss the future priorities for inclusive gender equality in the European Research Area. This will be done against the backdrop of the results of GENDERACTIONplus benchmark studies on gender equality policy implementation in European research, which have identified ongoing challenges and gaps and highlighted advances achieved in recent years. The debates will highlight the need for advancing intersectional and inclusive approaches to gender equality policy, with a focus on creating an inclusive research environment through institutional change and improving the quality and social relevance of research and innovation through integrating the gender dimension into its content research and innovation. The outcomes of the conference will serve to contribute to the debates on the future ERA policy agenda and ultimately the next European framework programme for research and innovation.
