BACKGROUND

The 7th Framework Programme strives to promote gender equality in scientific research, by facilitating the participation of women scientists and integrating the gender dimension into research content in all research areas. 

WHO ARE THE TOOLKIT AND TRAINING FOR?

The 7th Framework Programme strives to promote gender equality in scientific research, by facilitating the participation of women scientists and integrating the gender dimension into research content in all research areas. 

TRAINING METHOD

One-day training sessions: the morning consists of a general introduction to gender in research, while in the afternoon specific research fields are addressed with practical exercises. The method combines cognitive (knowledge-based) and inductive (experience-based) elements. The programme is constructed as much as possible as an interactive workshop, where all participants have the opportunity to contribute to the session.

PARTICIPATION

 

Participation is free. Participants should make their own travel and accomodation arrangements.

OBJECTIVES

The toolkit and training packages give the research community practical tools to integrate gender aspects into FP7 research, including equal opportunities for women and men AND the gender dimension of research, thereby contributing to excellence in research.

CONTENT OVERVIEW

How is the gender dimension integrated into a project?

The training introduces the practical toolkit. It comprises an overall introduction into gender and research and shows how gender is interwoven with all aspects of research. It then examines in pragmatic terms how the gender dimension of research content contributes to excellence in research. It also analyses case studies based on concrete examples drawn from nine specific research fields: health; food, agriculture and biotechnology; nanosciences, materials and new production technologies; energy; environment; transport; socio-economic sciences and humanities; science in society and specific activities of international cooperation.

We need you

We would greatly appreciate your support in advertising this opportunity offered by the European Commission. Here is some material you may use:

ANNOUNCEMENT 1

Interested in what gender-sensitive research practically means?

The project Gender in Research offers one-day training workshops for research professionals: scientists, project managers, National Contact Points, expert evaluators, research advisors, …
The workshops provide practical guidance on how the gender dimension can be integrated in research, using clear examples of how gender is relevant to existing FP7 projects.

Program of the day:

  • The morning is devoted to a general introduction to gender in research.

  • In the afternoon, there are two parallel sessions in which two specific research fields are addressed with practical exercises (cases).


Training sessions will take place at different locations across Europe. Check this webpage for regular updates on the calendar of planned events.

Participation in a training session is FREE.

Calendar: No more sessions are planned under this project

ANNOUNCEMENT 2

All you ever wanted to know about gender in research, but never dared to ask.

To further promote gender equality in scientific research within the 7th Framework Programme, the European Commission's Research Directorate-General offers free training opportunities on how to integrate gender aspects into research.

Calendar: No more sessions are planned under this project
