The ESMT Gender Equality Plan (GEP) was developed in the context of the EQUAL4EUROPE project. This project seeks to increase gender equality in six European research institutions from France, Germany, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and The Netherlands. All institutions have a clear focus on arts, humanities, social sciences, business and management, and law (AHMSSBL).
The main objectives of the EQUAL4EUROPE project are to:
- Remove barriers to the recruitment, retention, and career progression of women researchers;
- Address gender imbalances in decision-making processes; and,
- Integrate the gender dimension in research and innovation content.
The project started in January 2020 with a baseline assessment of gender equality issues in each organization. In 2021, organizations developed tailored GEPs. From 2022 until 2024, the focus is on the implementation of these GEPs.
The EQUAL4EUROPE project received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement 872499.
