Celebrate the International Day of Women and Girls in Science joining #ACTongender conference

The United Nations have proclaimed February 11 the International Day of Women and Girls in Science aiming to ensure full and equal access to and participation in science for women and girls. Notus is pleased to honour this day and stress that more efforts are needed to help advance gender equality in research and innovation.

Notus, as so many other research institutions, is working actively in this field, which is one of the of the priorities of the European Research Area. Sharing experience and knowledge between all practitioners is needed for sustained impact. This is the objective of the 1st International Synergy Conference of the ACT project: Building Communities of Practice for gender equality in ERA. An interactive event for practitioners to #ACTonGender in HE & R&I. The conference will be held on 25th of February 2019 in Brussels. By attending you will learn about ACT and how it will develop Communities of Practice (CoPs) approach to help advance gender equality in ERA, and specifically for improving careers, decision making, and integrating gender dimension in research.

For this reason, a large part of the event will involve participatory activities and an open discussion in addition to a general introduction about the ACT project and contributions from invited CoP experts. The event is geared towards getting to know existing and potential members of the ACT Communities of Practice across Europe. We will be pleased to meet you there.
