Women's Issues in Transportation: 5th International Conference on Women's Issues in Transportation - Bridging the Gap
Dato: 14.-16. april
Omtale: The 5th WIiT Conference is being organized around the general idea of “bridging the gap” in an effort to identify and address issues specific to women’s use and involvement in the transportation system and to ensure that transportation systems meet women’s needs. The conference will provide an international forum for information sharing and for presenting the latest research findings and policy analyses. The program will feature international officials, keynote speakers, researchers, and practitioners. The aim is to build on the research on women's transportation issues that has been developed over the past decades, and to broaden its perspective by considering women’s issues in transportation with a more balanced perspective - i.e. of women not just as passive recipients of transport services, but as actors in sustainable access and safe mobility research, policy development, governance and oversight, service delivery and business expansion. Additionally, the conference will aim to identify future research needs.
Gender and Higher Education in Europe: Assessing the Past, Re-examining the Present and Shaping the Future
Dato: 22.-24. mai
Omtale: Education researchers agree that institutions of higher education are undergoing major transformation in mission, administrative strategies, and governance. The advent of the “knowledge society” has further catapulted universities into competition for research funds and prestige. The new circumstances augur good times for science and technology, but lean times for the social sciences and the humanities. At the same time gender distribution and advancement opportunities in higher education remain a problem.
The conference themes are the following:
Strategier for opprykk til professor
Dato: 27. mai
Omtale: Universitetet i Tromsø har hatt en vellykket satsing for kvinners opprykk til professor. Vi har invitert en av kandidatene, Anna Nylund, som har lykkes med sitt prosjekt om opprykk til professor. Hun vil dele sine erfaringer, metoder og virkemidler fra et slikt opprykksløp. Anna Nylund er jurist og forsker på rettsmekling, saksbehandling i barnefordelingssaker, konfliktrådsmekling og sivilprosess, rettsmekling, saksbehandling i barnefordelingssaker, konfliktrådsmekling og sivilprosess.
Gender Summit 4: From Ideas to Markets: Excellence in mainstreaming gender into research, innovation, and policy
Dato: 30. juni-1. juli
Omtale: EGS2012 12014 will see the return of the Gender Summit to Brussels for the Gender Summit 4 - Europe (GS4EU). The GS4EU will, again, bring together experts from research, industry and policy to jointly establish practical and effective ways of improving quality and impact of research and innovation through the inclusion of gender in science knowledge making and application. The Programme will focus on strategies, tools, and processes that promote the concrete integration of the gender dimension into the European Commission's current Horizon 2020, and European Research Area programmes. The Summit's Themes and Tracks will focus on the cross-cutting role of gender and how gender has been and should be integrated within some of the major themes of the Horizon 2020 Work Programme, such as personalised health, water resources, energy, environment, transportation.
FEBS EMBO 2014 conference
Dato: 30. august-4. september
Omtale: The Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS), EMBO - Excellence in life sciences, and the French Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SFBBM) will hold a joint conference for the life sciences in 2014.
2014 marks the 50th anniversary of FEBS and EMBO, and the centennial of the SFBBM. This year's meeting replaces the normally separate annual conferences of FEBS and EMBO, and combining our communities, we expect to bring together a wide range of researchers.
The 8th European Conference on Gender Equality in Higher Education: Building futures – equality challenges in higher education: Encouraging Theory and practice dialogues
Dato: 3.-5. september
Omtale: The European conferences on gender equality in higher education have since 1998 brought regularly together hundreds of gender equality practitioners, researchers and administrators from Europe and beyond. The conferences provide an international forum to discuss and exchange information and experiences and share research results on the changes and challenges related to gender in academia, gender equality promotion and interventions in higher education and research institutions.
The first European conference on gender equality in higher education was organized in Finland by the University of Helsinki in 1998, and since then the conferences have traveled across Europe: to Zürich (2000), Genoa (2003), Oxford (2005), Berlin (2007), Stockholm (2009), Bergen (2012), and now in 2014 in Vienna.
Gender and Migration in Different Tracks of Higher Education
Dato: 31. oktober-1. november
Omtale: Higher education faces increasing trends of internationalization. A growing part of the faculty at universities (US) and universities of applied science (UAS) has an international background. In parallel the number of students with foreign nationality or a migration background has risen within the last decades. Although much less is known about the situation in higher professional training and education (PET)- a form of higher education widespread in the German-speaking countries – it is likely that PET also faces a growing number of students with migration experiences.
Up to date, little is known about whether and how trends of internationalization in higher education affect social inequality. This holds in particular regrading educational opportunities for young men and women with a migration background and/or foreign nationality and degrees earned abroad.
