News archive - [Call for Abstracts] Gender Summit 2016 | Deadline: July 1, 2016

The Gender Summit is a platform for evidence-based and consensus-led dialogue between scientists, policy makers, gender scholars, and key stakeholder groups in science endeavours. The 2016 Gender SummitEurope coincides with important policy developments in Europe and globally that look towards science knowledge and technological innovation to create a better future for all.  Significant here are: the new EU Gender Action Plan and Horizon 2020; the UN Sustainable Development Goals; the African Union’s Africa 2063 and Continental Education Strategy Africa agenda; and the OECD vision for Inclusive Innovation and Creating Our Common Future through Science and Technology.  It is, therefore, right that this year’s Gender Summit should open up dialogue on how understanding of sex/gender issues in research and innovation can also ensure sustainable and effective development.
