Let’s promote the GENDER-NET Plus call on the International Day of Women and Girls in Science!

On 11 February, we celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. Let’s take this opportunity to promote the GENDER-NET Plus call!

Launch of the co-funded call

As promised, the GENDER-NET Plus co-funded call has been launched on December 20. The pre-proposal must be submitted here before the deadline, Thursday, 1 March 2018, 17:00 (Central European Time – CET). Please download the call documents here to learn more about the call before applying.

This joint co-funded call invites research integrating a gender dimension in addressing urgent societal challenges. GENDER-NET Plus has chosen to take the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a point of departure for this call.

GENDER-NET Plus invites applications that address and explore interactions and interdependencies explicitly between SDG 5 Gender Equality and one or more of the following SDGs: SDG 3 Good health and well-being, SDG 9 Infrastructure, Industrialization and Innovation, and SDG 13 Climate Action.

Applicants may choose to address one or more of the outlined topics. For any chosen topic, an interdisciplinary approach is needed, addressing the interplay between society – technology – culture. Research that addresses the social gender dimension is strongly encouraged.
