TRAINING FOR GENDER EQUALITY
In 2009, Yellow Window developed (together with Engender and Genderatwork) the toolkit ‘Gender in EU-funded Research’. It comprises an overall introduction into gender and research and shows how gender is interwoven with all aspects of research. It then examines in pragmatic terms how the gender dimension of research content contributes to excellence in research. It also analyses case studies based on concrete examples drawn from nine specific research fields: health; food, agriculture and biotechnology; nanosciences, materials and new production technologies; energy; environment; transport; socio-economic sciences and humanities; science in society and specific activities of international cooperation. The toolkit can be downloaded here. It also exists in Spanish.
Subsequently, between 2009 and 2012, 73 one-day training sessions were delivered across Europe on behalf of the European Commission in order to build capacity among researchers for integrating the gender dimension in their research work. (This project was funded by the European Commission under the FP7 Capacities programme.)
