The Young Academy of Europe participates in the Horizon 2020 project CALIPER. The goal of this project is to support 7 Research Performing Organisations (RPOs) and 2 Research Funding Organisations (RFOs) across Europe to design, implement, evaluate and expand Gender Equality Plans (GEPs). CALIPER will stimulate the dialogue and collaboration between academia, public authorities, professionals, and industry players in order to tackle gender inequalities across the research- transfer-to-market pipeline.
Being a Member of CALIPER Consortium, YAE seeks to foster internal procedures that are going to result to tailored gender equality policies and sustainable structural changes in favor of a gender balanced and competent environment. The Organization is projected to assess the current conditions regarding gender issues and work on creating a GEP to introduce specific steps towards enhancing female researchers’ role. YAE is the member of CALIPER who leads the communication with the academic network across Europe to spread information about the project accomplishments and to facilitate the engagement of those interested with the project activities.
