Experience exchange between Research Funding Organisations: register to the webinars

SUPERA is launching a series of webinars and online workshops to facilitate experience exchanges between Research Funding Organisations (RFOs) that develop or plan to develop a Gender Equality policy

There is an increasing number of RFOs that have recently launched measures to improve the impact of their funding schemes on gender equality. Sometimes in the form of a Gender Equality Plan, sometimes through a policy, sometimes through individual measures. Many more RFOs are observing what is happening and considering to experiment as well with some measures.

The two RFOs that are part of the SUPERA project would like to stimulate more experience exchanges among the many interested RFOs.

The first step in that process is to organise two webinars that will take place on 13 and 18 November. Each webinar starts with two RFOs that explain their experience linked to the theme of the webinar. This is followed by a 40-minute Q&A and exchanges with the audience.

Webinar #1 – 13 November 2020 from 10:00 to 11:30 am CET
Gender Equality in RFOs, two experiences
Experiences from the Regional Authority of Sardinia and WWTF (the Vienna Science and Technology Fund) on the steps in developing a comprehensive policy.

Webinar #2 – 18 November 2020 from 10:00 to 11:30 am CET

Experiences from ANR (Agence Nationale de la Recherche – FR) and TA CR (the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic) on measures to avoid gender bias.
