GENERA – Gender Equality Network in the European Research Area

Gender Equality Network in the European Research Area (GENERA) is a project under Horizon 2020, the current EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.

GENERA's objective is to monitor and improve the gender equality policies of European research institutions and organisations – specifically in the field of physics research. NordForsk participates in the network as an observer.

One of GENERA’s initiatives is to hold a number of Gender in Physics Day events, whose purpose is to present and assess different types of measures promoting gender equality. NordForsk, together with CERN and the European Southern Observatory (ESO), organised the fourth Gender in Physics Day, held at CERN near Geneva 27 January 2017.
