GENDERED INNOVATIONS – HOW GENDER ANALYSIS CONTRIBUTES TO RESEARCH

On 9 July 2013, the Seminar on Gendered Innovations: How Gender Analysis Contributes to Research took place at the European Parliament in Brussels. Many high-level speakers from the European Commission, the European Parliament, industry and research community were present at the event, which was aimed at highlighting how gender has an important role to play when defining research content. During the seminar, also the Report “Gendered Innovations – How Gender Analysis Contributes to Research” was presented. The report was drafted by an international expert group of more than sixty experts who, over the years, developed concrete case studies in several fields such as health & medicine, environment and transport, while illustrating how gender analysis leads to new ideas and excellence in research. The final report was presented within the framework of the envisaged strengthening of gender as a cross-cutting issue in the next EU Programme “Horizon 2020”.
