Linking Research and Innovation for Gender Equality

CALIPER project supports seven Research Performing and two Research Funding Organisations in nine countries across Europe, that are in an initial stage on gender equality improvement, to develop Gender Equality Plans (GEPs) and engage the local Innovation Hubs to transfer the gained knowledge beyond academia.

The CALIPER Charter

The CALIPER Charter represents a transformative initiative designed to create lasting change in organisations and ecosystems. It is a European-wide advocacy effort to consolidate and strengthen the current intersectional and intersectoral approach to gender equality in research and innovation in view of the ERA Policy Agenda from 2025 and the forthcoming Horizon Europe Work Programmes.

Discover the Key Outcomes of Gender Equality Actions

Each RPO and RFO involved in the project has designed and implemented a tailored, inclusive GEP based on their unique issues and capacities to advance the gender balancing strategies and address existing status of inequalities.

Browse the dedicated pages of the CALIPER RPOs and RFOs to discover key results and outcomes from partners’ actions.

Role Model Interviews

CALIPER PRO and RFO partners interview exceptional female researchers in their respective areas to create promotional videos that raise awareness and generate debate about gender inequality issues in STEM fields.

Be inspired!

Having completed the series of role model interviews, the CALIPER project put forward a compilation of valuable throughts, ideas and approaches to STEM disciplines through the lens of the interviewed women.

The compilation video was aired during the closure of the project’s Joint Final Conference and we are proud to share it with all those who seek gender equality, inclusiveness and diversity across science!
