Theme "From Ideas to Markets: Excellence in mainstreaming gender into research, innovation, and policy"

The GS4 - Europe will bring together experts from research, industry and policy to jointly establish practical and effective ways of improving quality and impact of research and innovation through the inclusion of gender in science knowledge making and application. 

Moreover, the GS4 - Europe will focus on strategies, tools, and processes that promote the concrete integration of the gender dimension into the European Commission's current Horizon 2020, and European Research Area programmes. The Summit will focus on the cross-cutting role of gender and how gender has been and should be integrated within some of the major themes of the Horizon 2020 Work Programme, such as personalised health, water resources, energy, environment, transportation.  Speakers and participants will examine the latest research evidence and showcase studies and projects, organisations and strategies that have significantly improved research and innovation quality by integrating the gender dimension into research design and process. The GS4 will expand on the body of the research evidence introduced in previous summit events by highlighting recent developments of relevance to the impacts anticipated in the Horizon 2020 programme themes.

Registration for the event will open on March1st.
