Endorse 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.

Signing the Charter is voluntary and non-legally binding; it can be done on an individual/personal level or on behalf of an organisation/institution. Those who endorse the Charter will act as as inward and outward change agents promoting transformation toward gender equality and inclusiveness within the geographic, socio-economic, organisational contexts and cultures they operate.

Tell your story!

A significant goal of the Charter is to share knowledge and multiply collaborative actions to bring greater gender equality within your ecosystem! We invite you to submit and share your own good practices, approaches and efforts that correspond to the values and principles of the CALIPER Charter. The Charter signatories will get the chance to communicate to each other best practises and experiences towards greater inclusiveness and balance in research and innovation fields!

Core values, principles and commitments to action

By signing the CALIPER Charter, the signatories adhere to three essential values and principles, that are reflected to the Charter’s relevant commitments to actions

Its Objectives

The CALIPER Charter promotes an intersectional and intersectoral approach to inclusive gender equality being aligned with ERA policies, the Horizon Europe Gender Equality Plan (GEP) requirement, and calling for even greater and more in depth mainstreaming of an inclusive gender equality approach in Research and Innovation ecosystems.

Embracing these directions, the Charter emphasises on leveraging institutional and broader external change when designing and implementing inclusive GEPs, based on a collaborative, participatory and multi-stkaeholder approach that has been tested for the entire lifecycle of CALIPER project.

Built upon CALIPER key project outputs

Study on gender inclusive lenses

A study to rethink Research & Innovation concepts and practices and explore potential of synergies with external stakeholders in GEPs design and implementation, conducted within the project and with input from many sister projects and other stakeholders.

Design of indicators

Indicators for gender inclusive analysis of Research and Innovation ecosystems conducted jointly with the internal assessment of GEPs implementing institutions.

Project partners experiences

CALIPER GEPs implementing partners experience in setting up co-creative environments for their GEPs design and creating local Research and Innovation Hubs to promote collaborative actions and measures.
