The GENDER-NET Plus consortium is very proud to announce that 13 transnational research projects integrating sex and gender dimensions in their research contents have been selected for funding.
The projects will tackle mainly health, but also industrialisation, innovation and climate action, three of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The projects involving 13 countries (Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Ireland, Italy, Israel, Norway, Spain, Sweden and Canada) and 51 partners will start first quarter 2019.
The international scientific area is still facing challenges in reaching gender equality and integration of gender dimension in the research analysis, which is crucial to avoid gender-biased science.
These 13 projects should bring significant results and contribute that way to the objective of the European Research Area to achieve gender equality and mainstreaming in research.
GENDER-NET Plus has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
