Gender Equality in Research and Innovation

Gender Equality in Research and Innovation

The AE Cardiff Hub has joined the Horizon 2020-funded CALIPER project, as part of a consortium of organisations that aim to address gender equality within research and innovation in Europe.

About the CALIPER project

The CALIPER project’s goal is to make research organisations more gender equal by increasing the number of female researchers in STEM, improving their careers prospects and integrating a gender dimension in research.

The project supports nine research organisations, predominantly in Southern and Eastern Europe, to establish Gender Equality Plans.

Here are some key facts about the CALIPER project.

AE Cardiff’s role in CALIPER

The Cardiff Hub leads on communications across Europe and encourages wider engagement with the project, producing digital content and organising events. In this, we work closely with the Young Academy of Europe (YAE) and Academia Europaea (AE).
