The Gender Summit Europe 2014


The GS4 - Europe will, once again, bring together experts from the world of research, industry and policy to together set up practical and effective ways of improving quality of research and innovation throughout the inclusion of gender in science knowledge making and application.

The Gender Summits are devoted to supporting excellence and efficiency of research and innovation in every levels, due to the inclusion of gender.

The Gender Summit Europe 2014 will deal with strategies, tools, and processes which encourage the real integration of the gender equality into the European Commission's current Horizon 2020 program, and European Research Area programmes. The Summit will focus on the role of gender and how gender should be included within some of the major matters of Horizon 2020, such as personalised health, water resources, energy, environment, transportation.

The core of EGS204 is to promote a standards-based and systematic operationalization of gender in research and innovation process as a key quality condition in study design, research content, and processes, in order to foster smarter, sustainable, and effective European science endeavour.

The Gender Summit Europe 2014 defines a standard-based approach for integration of the gender dimension in relation with research and innovation.

The subjects and topics for the programme of the European Gender Summit 2014 are grounded by the challenges identified in the EC Europe 2020 strategy, specifically. health, ageing, energy, environment, climate change, but also the more specific topical objectives of Horizon 2020 program.

The main objectives of the GS4 are:

  • Improving quality of research      and innovation content, process and practice
  • Enhancing efficacy and      socio-economic impact of research and innovation
  • Ensuring effectiveness of      research and innovation policy
  • Securing efficient R&D      human capital
