Recordings of the Final Dissemination Conference “Promoting and implementing the sex and gender dimension into research” (13-14 Feb 2023)

GENDER-NET Plus’ Final Dissemination Conference “Promoting and implementing the sex and gender dimension into research” was held on February 13-14, 2023, at the CNRS’ Brussels office. Sixty participants attended on site and more then a hundred followed the conference online.

The 13 transnational research projects co-funded in the frame of the project presented their results during those two days organized around four thematic sessions:

  • Improving care for the ones in context of vulnerability
  • Building policies against gender-based violence
  • Unpacking the sex/gender dimension of health/medicine
  • Addressing gender roles

These different topics and the impact of the projects’ results were discussed by several invited representatives from research producing and research funding organizations, from national ministries and from the innovation sector during panel discussions.

Members of the GENDER-NET Plus consortium also took the opportunity to present the achievements of the joint activities of the last five years.
