Field of research: Gender Equality, Structural change, Higher Education and Science

Our Focus: Process monitoring and evaluation

Project duration: 4 years (01/2020-12/2023)

Funding body: EU Horizon 2020


Aim of the Project

LeTSGEPs will support the design and implementation of Gender Equality Plans
and Gender Budgeting in six different institutions and their countries.

Research Object and Vision

To design actions that will address gender bias in research performing organizations (RPOs), the project will form a network of partners with different levels of experience in Gender Equality Plans (GEPs)and Gender Budgeting (GB): they will work together to design a common methodology to implement GEPs in their environment. The local staff will be actively involved, so to learn how to design GEPs tailored to specific issues, and how to implement GB. Each institution will be guided by a mentor, a professional expert in GEPs and GB that will support the local staff in every step of the project and ensure implementation consistency. The implementation of these tailored plans will be continuously monitored and adjusted, to work towards the most effective measures for systemic change within the institution. Within LeTSGEPs, the partners will follow the Gender Equality in Academia and Research GEAR tool, developed by the European Institute for Gender Equality (2016), and will work with the support of a highly qualified Scientific Advisory Board.
