Plattform to set the Gender Equality Agenda
Despite efforts to reduce fragmentation across the European Research Area, the European scientific system is still facing challenges in achieving gender equality and gender mainstreaming in research and innovation. In this context, and in line with ERA policy goals and national contexts, the GENDER-NET Plus ERA-NET Cofund was launched September 15, 2017 and will run until 2022.
SPEAR’s central objective is to implement GEPs (Gender Equality Plans) in its nine implementing RPOs (Research Performing Organisations). Based on a step-by-step guide to GEP implementation devised by the European Institute for Gender Equality, SPEAR follows a distinct methodological path committed to creative, open, mitigating, processual, accountable, SMART and sustainable changes (SPEAR’s COMPASS).
