GENDER-NET Plus Final Dissemination Conference: Promoting and implementing the sex and gender dimension into research
The H2020 GENDER-NET Plus project, launched in 2017, is drawing to a close. A Final Dissemination Conference will take place on February 13th and 14th, 2023, in Brussels. The event will be streamed online.
The aim of the conference is to share the results of the 13 transnational research projects co-funded in the frame of the GENDER-NET Plus project. Those research projects tackle pressing societal challenges (e.g. health and ageing, gender-based violence, climate change) and all adopted a sex, gender or intersectional perspective on their research topic. Read more about the projects’ topics here : https://gender-net-plus.eu/funded-projects/. It is also an opportunity to present the achievements of the joint activities undertaken by the members of the GENDER-NET Plus consortium.
Representatives from research producing and research funding organizations, from national ministries and from the innovation sector will take part in panels discussion to discuss the socio-economic impact of the research outcomes.
Registration is free but mandatory to follow the conference online.
The conference will be recorded and the videos will be made available on our website.
