[Calls | EU Programmes 2014-2020]: Topics with a Gender Dimension

The gender dimension is integrated into calls for proposals in many of the programmes of Horizon 2020. In the Horizon 2020 work programme 2016-2017, the gender dimension is explicitly mentioned in 108 of the 568 topics distributed in 13 work programme parts.
A full list of these topics is available on the Participant Portal under the “quick finder” link on gender (see the link below). In addition, applicants may also use the search engine on that page, which lists all the topics available with an explicit reference to gender, women- and/or men-related issues.

An in-depth understanding of men and women's needs, behaviours and attitudes contributes to improve the scientific quality and societal relevance of the produced knowledge, technology and/or innovation. It also leads to produce goods and services better suited to potential markets.

Applicants are encouraged to develop a gender dimension in their projects whenever relevant. A topic is considered gender relevant when it concerns individuals of groups of persons and/or when its findings may affect individuals or groups.
