Gender Summit 7 Europe 2015

Mastering gender in research performance, contexts, and outcomes.

Time and place


Berlin 06.11.2015 to 07.11.2015

Europe is leading the world in the effort to make science more aware of and responsive to the consequences of gender inequality and gender bias in science practice and knowledge. The Summit will advance understanding of when, how and why gender issues in research can produce different outcomes for women and men, and, like its predecessors, it will demonstrate important intellectual, societal and economic benefits of gender mainstreaming.

The Summit takes place in Berlin and precedes the Falling Walls celebration as a reminder that gender inequality is a ‘wall’ that also must fall. GS7-Europe will demonstrate how to apply the gender lens to improve effectiveness of research and innovation, and how to transform policy context through strategic, high-level policy alliances to enable lasting change to take place.

Day 1 focuses on the benefits of gender equal and gender sensitive research and innovation and Day 2 on enhancing the capacity of policy actions to achieve lasting change.

The GS7EU is convened in partnership with Elsevier, Robert Bosch Stiftung, NordForsk and Portia.
