The Project EGERA

EGERA intends to promote a full set of measures to achieve gender equality and fight gender-based stereotypes in research and the academia.
EGERA is a tool for achieving two overarching objectives:

  • Gender equality in research and higher education
  • Bringing a gender perspective in research contents and outputs

EGERA pursues both an ambitious and pragmatical objective by tackling the opacity of recruitment and appraisal procedures, gender bias in evaluation and practices which contribute to slow down women's careers. A Europe-scale project EGERA brings together 8 research and higher education institutions from 7 EU member states + Turkey.
Actions to be undertaken by respective partners shall to be also understood as a whole EGERA shall communicate a spirit of innovation, transparency and openness EGERA will constitute a label of equality, fairness and excellence.
