On International Women’s day, we were very happy to announce that GENDER-NET Plus had received 85 pre-proposals across 326 partners, and many positive comments and supports from a wide range of stakeholders.

GENDER-NET Plus partners have organized events related to the call and the project in itself and the efforts of the consortium have significantly contributed to the success of the call, which represents an excellent opportunity for experts to formulate proposals that address a variety of pressing issues and urgent societal challenges.

We were all extremely surprised by the interest and the enthusiasm generated by the GENDER-NET Plus co-funded call!

We thank you for your participation and contribution to its success. It is now time to proceed to the elegibility check and the evaluation.
Stay tuned for the next steps of the selection!
