ECE-NTUA participates in an EC training session on Gender Equality Plans.

The CALIPER team at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the NTUA was invited to present the lessons learned from the development of the School’s GEP, in a training session organised by the European Commission, on November 9, 2021.

The online training was a part of the support activities provided to organisations across Europe on complying with the GEP eligibility criterion in Horizon Europe.

The trainings are targeting EU Member States and Associated Countries in which there are many organisations concerned by the Horizon Europe eligibility criterion which do not have a GEP in place yet. The training session aimed at supporting stakeholders in Greece and was attended by 33 representatives from academic institutions, research organisations, and public sector stakeholders.

The training session included presentations on aspects of the design and development of a GEP and the relevant eligibility criterion for Horizon Europe.

During the meeting, participated three invited speakers from organisations at various stages of their GEP development.

The CALIPER team presentation addressed the key lessons from the process of developing the Gender Equality Plan as part of the CALIPER project. The presentation highlighted the CALIPER project, the internal assessment methodology, as well as the contents of the School’s GEP. Finally, the presentation reported on various observations and best practices involving the development of the plan and provided a set of recommendations.
