A European Strategy for Gender Equality: Combating Discrimination in the Workplace and Beyond

Dato: 22. juni
Sted: Brussel
Arrangør: Public Policy Exchange

Omtale: Gender equality is a fundamental right recognised by the Treaty of Rome in 1957 as well as by the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. The promotion of gender equality is therefore not only essential from a human rights perspective, but also makes sense from an economic viewpoint. It means equal access to resources, as well as empowerment and visibility of both women and men in all spheres of public and private life.

In order to reinforce the continuous work made so far, the European Commission released in December 2015 a Strategic Engagement for Gender Equality 2016-2019 which sets the framework for the Commission’s future work towards the promotion of gender equality. The Council of Europe, through its Europe Gender Equality Strategy (2014-2017) has also set guidelines that will lead the activities of the organisation towards its ambitious achievements.

Delegates will:

  • Share comparative knowledge on gender-based discrimination, violence and harassment by raising awareness of current challenges in Europe
  • Explore innovative solutions to fight the causes of gender inequalities at work and beyond
  • Promote measures to enhance the potential of women entrepreneurs

9th European Conference on Gender Equality in Higher Education

Dato: 12.-14. september
Sted: Paris, Frankrike
Arrangører: The French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), the Université Paris Diderot, and the Université Sorbonne Paris Cité (USPC), with support from the French Ministry for National Education, Higher Education and Research

Omtale: The three French organizing institutions – CNRS, Université Paris Diderot and Université Sorbonne Paris Cité – and the French Ministry of National Education, Higher Education and Research, wish to inform you that the 9th European Conference on Gender Equality in Higher Education will be taking place on 12-14 September 2016, in Paris, France, hosted by the Université Paris Diderot.

The European Conferences on Gender Equality in Higher Education have, since 1998, brought regularly together hundreds of gender equality actors 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.

France is hosting this event for the first time. Gender research, including research on women in academia in particular, is well developed in France and has grown considerably these past ten years. France has also put into action since 2012 an important legislative and regulatory machinery aimed at ensuring effective equality between women and men in all sectors of society and in higher education and research particularly. Its institutions, as well as its associations and companies, are involved in numerous actions, and partners in various European networks. Notably, France is project coordinator for the GENDER-NET ERA-NET, which will be holding its final conference as part of this 9th Conference.

Deadline for submission has been set to February 29th, 2016.

LERU-LU gender conference 2016

Dato: 4.-5. oktober
Sted: Lund, Sverige
Arrangør: Lunds universitet

Omtale: A conference on implementation of a critical diversity perspective in the academia! The conference will take place at Lund University on October 4-5, 2016 and is a joint project from the STEM-faculties and LERU.

The conference should be a meeting point for researchers and practitioners in the field. The themes of the conference will be:

  • Engineering progress for women in science, technology and medicine. What may work and what does not? Are there working ”check-lists” to follow to create better conditions?
  • Best practices that work. Are there good examples we can learn from?
  • What is the fore-front in gender and diversity within science, technology and medicine? What is the latest in research and how can it be implemented?

Gender Summit 9 Europe: Gender-based research, innovation and development for sustainable economies and societal wellbeing

Dato: 8.-10. november
Sted: Brussel
Arrangør: Gender summit

Omtale: The Gender Summit is a platform for evidence-based and consensus-led dialogue between scientists, policy makers, gender scholars, and key stakeholder groups in science endeavours. The 2016 Gender Summit Europe coincides with important policy developments in Europe and globally that look towards science knowledge and technological innovation to create a better future for all. Significant here are: the new EU Gender Action Plan and Horizon 2020; the UN Sustainable Development Goals; the African Union’s Africa 2063 and Continental Strategy for Education in Africa agenda; and the OECD vision for Inclusive Innovation. It is, therefore, right that this year’s Gender Summit should also open up dialogue on how understanding of sex/gender issues in research and innovation can also ensure sustainable and effective development.


  1. New research on when, why and how sex-gender issues impact on quality of research, innovation, and development outputs and outcomes
  2. How gender continues to be addressed in Horizon 2020
  3. How to mainstream gender into the EU new vision for ERA of Open Innovation, Open Science, Open to the World
  4. How the global policy agendas to make the world a better place for all can benefit from incorporating scientific understanding of sex-gender issues
  5. New efforts to develop reliable, and region and sector sensitive, performance metrics and gender equality indicators and statistics, and to integrate them into research, innovation, and development policy actions
  6. The contributions made by the Gender Summit platform, and its global community of experts and practitioners, to advance gender-sensitive and responsive research, innovation, and development.
