Toolkit - Gender in EU-funded research

Gender-sensitive research takes a twin approach: it pays attention to the participation of women and men, providing equal opportunities for all, and it integrates gender into the research content all the way from the initial research idea to the dissemination of results.

From Toolkit: Gender in EU-funded research, 2009.

In BACCHUS, due to its fundamental research character, gender does not play a significant role in its research content.
We therefore focus on equal opportunities:

  • Is there a gender balance in the project consortium and team, at all levels and in decision-making positions?
  • Do working conditions allow all members of staff to combine work and family life in a satisfactory manner?
  • Are there mechanisms in place to manage and monitor gender equality aspects, e.g. workforce statistics, as required by FP7?
