EELISA believes that higher education has a fundamental role in building a more sustainable, fair, and equitable society. For this reason, EELISA aims to promote an accessible and diverse university, where each and every person, regardless of their culture, ethnicity, gender or beliefs, finds their place to study, grow and contribute to the construction of this society.
Following this aim, EELISA offers two not-to-be-missed events: the Workshop on Gender Dimension in Research (5th of October, @10:00 to12:30pm – CET) and the EELISA Inclusiveness Forum (6th of October, @10:00 to12:30pm – CET)
The aim of the Workshop is to introduce researchers, engineers and academic staff to sex and gender analysis as factors that can affect the quality of research results, as well as to explain how and why sex- and gender-related issues can influence research and innovation decisions when setting priorities, designing studies, communicating results. Researchers from EELISA institutions will be sharing their experiences, opinions, and best practices. With speakers such as Inés Sánchez de Madariaga (UNESCO Chair on Gender in STI) and Athanasia Moungou (Gender Sector Unit D4-Democracy & European Values), among others.
This event will take place via zoom on the 5th of October, from @10:00 to12:30pm – CET.
