Submitted COST Action

We submitted in November a COST Action which aims to increase visibility of inequalities faced in Research Higher Ecuation and Academia from a gender perspective and to promote a sustainable dialogue between various stakeholders in the research ecosystem at the systemic level (European & national policy-makers) and at the institutional level (senior researchers, academic managers) by creating a community of gender equality practitioners composed of various stakeholders (ECRs, independent researchers, academic managers, organizations) across Europe.

Results shall be announced in May 2021. If you are interested to participate if the project is selected, do not hesitate to get in touch with us : anne-sophie.godfroy@ens.psl.eu
