Talk „Gendered innovations in research“ by Professor Ineke Klinge


The talk will focus on the new and reinforced ‘gender requirements’ that have been implemented in the European Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 that runs from 2014–2020. The European Commission has a long record of paying attention to the position of women in research and to the gender dimension of the research and innovation content. To support and stimulate integration of the gender dimension researchers can now profit from the methods for sex and gender analysis that have been developed by the Gendered Innovations project. Together ‘fixing the numbers’ and ‘fixing the knowledge’ will stimulate creativity and produce excellence in research and innovation that meets the needs of both women and men.
