The event titled „Gender Equality Plan Development: Fulfilling the Horizon Europe requirements and beyond!“ will be held on 2 July 2021 from 10.00 to 11.30, via the Zoom platform.
This event is organized as part of the Horizon 2020 Project WBC-RRI.NET in which the University of Banja Luka is part of the consortium.
The event is dedicated to gender equality issues in research organizations in the Western Balkans as a means to establish a platform for knowledge exchange and joint learning on the topic of gender dimension as one of the key priorities of responsible research and innovation.
The issue of gender equality is important, because the Horizon Europe programme requires a much deeper understanding of this topic. Also, participation in the Horizon Europe programme requires the development of institutional gender equality plans (GEP), which will become a criterion for participation in this programme as of 2022.
It is an event during which participants will have the opportunity to listen to lectures by lecturers from the European Commission, the Regional Cooperation Council, and representatives of research organizations from several countries. The event is intended for researchers, policy makers and those involved in research and research policies in the Western Balkans and the European Union countries.
