Gender-sensitive institutional strategies and research actions will generate enhanced, relevant and fully inclusive innovation processes.
Transformative, tailor-made Gender Equality Plans structured around these shared challenges will be defined, and operationalized with the help of Professional gender experts. They will provide support in the domains of capacity building to steer change and guide monitoring & evaluation processes. This iterative process towards change is based on four pillars:
LEARN from each other and from what exists;
INDUCE visible and measurable changes, based on a common understanding of the project impact pathway and by using inclusive and participatory approches;
MONITOR AND EVALUATE progress, encompassing external monitoring and self-monitoring actions;
SHARE the project results with a broad range of stakeholders and contribute to buidling a community of practitioners in Europe and beyond.
Explicit commitment from senior and middle management in the Partner organisations was secured prior to writing the proposal and is incorporated in the project governance and activities.
