Research Project:
COST Action TA1201: Gender, Science, Technology and Environment - genderSTE
Research Areas
Specifically it will enhance the implementation of gender-focussed policy measures for structural change in science and technology institutions and integration of sex and gender dimensions in the content of science and technology. It aims to develop knowledge and resources regarding the sex and gender dimensions of technological development and innovation processes, with specific attention to the Grand Challenges identified in Horizon 2020 and the Joint Programming Initiative (JPI) Urban Europe. Description The main objective of genderSTE is to promote a better integration of gender dimensions in science and technology at three main levels: Promoting women¿s careers in science and technology through structural change of institutions (as recommended by the European Commission) by disseminating existing research and practice; Promoting a better integration of gender in the content of science, research and technology, by dissemination existing research on the topic, i.e. the EU-US Gendered Innovations project; Identifying gender dimensions relevant to environment-related Horizon2020 Grand Challenges and to the JPI Urban Europe. genderSTE aims to overcome two challenges: The lack of implementation of previously-elucidated gender in science and technology roadmaps and best practice guidelines throughout many COST countries, in two specific and interrelated aspects: structural change of institutions for promoting women¿s careers; integration of sex and gender analysis in the content of research and technology. The need to develop discipline-specific gender roadmaps and best practice guides for important fields such as the Horizon2020 Grand Challenges and Urban Europe.
