The Research & Innovation Hub of ECE NTUA

What is the R&I Hub?

ECE NTUA has identified external key players of the regional and national innovation ecosystem, including academia and universities, industry players, ministries/government bodies and public sector and civil society organisations to engage them in the GEP process.

Engaging interested and key external stakeholders in the GEP processes can bring gender balance and gender sensitiveness in transfer to market of scientific research results, it motivates young girls to embrace STEM studies, and it promotes gender sensitive co-design of research and tech products.

ECE NTUA works with the external players of the Hub, to implement the collaborative GEP actions.  These actions facilitate institutional change internally, but also initiate a conversation among the regional and national stakeholders, to adopt and implement gender policies in their organisations.

The R&I Hub members

The R&I Hub of ECE NTUA officially consists of 39 organisations. Fifteen of them belong to the academic community, sixteen are industry players, four are civil society organisations, and 4 are public organisations.

Organisation Team

Τhe ECE Working Group (WG) will support the design of the GEP, its implementation, monitoring and further update whenever necessary, through collaboration with the ECE CALIPER project team.
