For GENDERACTION, a very busy year has come to a close. In April, we organized a successful conference in Brussels entitled The Future Of Gender Equality in the European Research Area, to discuss visions on gender equality in research in the EU, in particular in the new Horizon Europe framework program. Marcela Linková followed up the outcomes of the conference and other project activities in the autumn by presenting recommendations on structural change as the main tool for promoting gender equality at the level of research institutions at the Finnish Presidency Conference on New Parthways for Gender Equality in Research and Innovation. These recommendations are part of a series of documents drawn up by the GENDERACTION team, which were aimed among other objectives at increasing the integration of gender equality into the new framework program (for more go here and here). We ended the eventful year with a workshop on gender equality in international cooperation at STEM in Malta. We discussed the possibilities and limits of cooperation with non-EU countries and considered specific topics and challenges that we should prioritize in our efforts to achieve gender equality in research in the future.
