A Mutual Learning workshop “Towards the identification of best practices in the Gender Equality Arena within an organisation” was organised by CNR, CNTI and CIC nanoGUNE in the context of the project R&I PEERS funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, on November 7th in Rome, Italy.
The R&I Peers project is being funded by the EU Horizon 2020 programme. The project spanned 9 countries and involved running a number of SDDPs to bring together stakeholders and experts to strengthen the knowledge base, as well as share experiences with the Gender Equality arena, thus ensuring long-term adaptation of the Gender Equality Plans and Strategies produced. The aim was to implement and improve 7 Gender Equality Plans in R&I-related organisations; to address the gap in gender representation in decision-making and research, and to maximize the impact and the efficacy of gender content in the research programs.
The R& I Peers project received funding from the EU Horizon 2020 project under funding agreement no 788171
