Gender equality in funding mechanisms
Date: 26 January 2021 start at 11:00 am (CET), close at 12:30
In this third webinar, participants will have the possibility to listen to two experiences of Gender Equality Policies and measures with regard to funding research. Both experiences are from Spain, a country that has been a pioneer in the EU to develop gender equality measures.
The first experience is from the regional Government of Navarra. They will share their experience with practices to use their funding mechanisms to improve the gender balance in research teams, as well as to include gender in the research content of the proposals.
The second experience is from the State Research Agency active at national level, directly linked to the Ministry of Science and Innovation. This agency recently approved a Gender Equality Plan and will share its content as well as the context and process to get it approved.
The last part of the webinar will be devoted to questions and answers and exchanges with the participants.
From the Government of Navarra (Spain) – area of University, Innovation and Digital Transformation: Juan Cruz Cigudosa García, Counsellor.
From State Research Agency for the R+I+D activities (Spain): Victoria Ley, Head of the evaluation and monitoring department.
