On 10 March 2022, the Expert Group on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on gender equality in EU R&I kicked off its work. The new Expert Group will investigate the consequences of the COVID-19 crisis and the pandemic containment measures put in place at institutional, national and EU level, on the work and productivity of women researchers and on gender equality in the EU research and innovation system in general. This will be developed into a report with key policy recommendations on mitigating the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on women researchers and strengthening gender equality in R&I in the post-Covid recovery. The report will be available at the beginning of 2023.
