HOW we work

SUPERA is organized into 8 main groups of activity: some of them last for the whole duration of the project, while others have a different length. Participants contribute in different ways to the achievement of the results relating to each activity group. The result is a complex and challenging team effort.

Here’s how we work.

The Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) is the leader of the package of activities relating to ethics.
In order to comply with the ethical principles of national and European legislation, the consortium has laid down several ethics requirements for each activity, raising ethical issues such as the management of personal data, interviews and surveys and the recruitment of research participants. The SUPERA project deals with a great amount of sensitive and personal data that are treated with the highest level of confidentiality.

Detailed information on data collection, storage, protection, retention and destruction is included in the Personal Data Protection Plan and in the Data Management Plan. In case of interviews and surveys all participants are given an informed consent form. The procedures and criteria used to identify or recruit research participants is clear and transparent, and specific attention is paid to the particular situation of women participating in interviews.

Universidad Complutense de Madrid coordinates and manages all the actions related to the project, in order to guarantee its successful execution in terms of schedule, resources, scope and impact. UCM responsibility includes technical and financial reporting and all official administrative procedures, the revision and submission to the European Commission of all project-generated contents and the coordination of project meetings. These actions will be presented in the project’s management handbook, in order to develop a comprehensive catalogue of best practices and documentation handling.

Another very important responsibility is the organization of the SUPERA launch and closing events, which are essential to enhance the impact of SUPERA activities. Last, but not least, the Coordinator is responsible for data management, dealing not only with privacy and data protection, but also with data sharing and activities connected with the Open Research Data Pilot.

The Central European University (CEU) is in charge of the activities in this work package. In order to design gender equality plans tailored to the needs and priorities of each participant, a baseline assessment of gender equality mainstreaming is developed in each research organization, namely universities and funding bodies. Documentary, organizational and statistical analysis, individual interviews, focus groups and surveys will be carried out, and case studies will be identified, in order to detect gender inequalities in any of our four key action areas.

Each partner will analyze and compile all the potential gender-related issues with the aim of establishing priority areas of intervention. Finally, a joint gender mainstreaming strategy will be developed, together with a working plan to account for resource allocation, gender equality objectives and timeline.

This set of activities is led by Yellow Window (YW). The aim is to develop tools and methods, tailored to meet each organization’s needs and to build the capacity of teams at all levels. YW designs train-the-trainer and training programmes on gender equality, addressing all the main GEPs’ areas of action and providing high-level expertise on institutional change for gender equality throughout the project.

Tools and methods drawn from design thinking are used to support the involvement of each academic community through permanent Gender Equality Hubs and short-term Fab Labs to explore innovative solutions.

This package of activities, managed by Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM), is designed to build inclusive gender mainstreaming mechanisms adapted to the needs of each participating university.

Actions include the development of an operational framework for the implementation of gender equality actions addressing gender imbalances in recruitment, retention and career progression, decision-making and integrating the gender dimension in research. A comprehensive gender information management system to share all useful references and resources for the successful implementation of GEPs will be set up.

This package of activities, managed by the Spanish Ministerio de Ciencia, Innovación y Universidades (MICIU), is designed to build inclusive gender mainstreaming mechanisms adapted to the needs of each participating organisation through Gender Equility Hubs, Fab labs and a dedicated RFO pilot network.

Actions include the development of an operational framework for the implementation of gender equality actions addressing gender imbalances in recruitment, retention and career progression, decision-making and integrating the gender dimension in research. A comprehensive gender information management system to share all useful references and resources for the successful implementation of GEPs will be set up.

In SUPERA, monitoring and evaluating the progress of GEP implementation from an independent point of view will increase the chances of achieving set objectives and promptly identifying any deviations from goals. The Fondation nationale des sciences politiques (Science PO) will be in charge of these activities.

Science Po will manage activities connected with the design of a comprehensive monitoring and evaluation approach, ensuring that the lessons learnt from previous experiences are taken on board. Science Po will also assess the extent to which gender equality policies are accepted by each organization, and the sustainability of changes.

Università degli Studi di Cagliari (UNICA) leads the dissemination and communication of SUPERA activities, ensuring an effective communication
about the project and its results within and beyond SUPERA community, to academic and non-academic audiences. The aim of the communication and dissemination campaign is to raise public awareness about the importance of gender equality in research organizations and academia. For this reason, stakeholders are involved at all levels within and outside each organization.

Communication activities are also aimed at boosting the institutionalization of gender equality policies in order to ensure sustainable results even after the project has ended.
