BUILDING AN EVALUATION FRAMEWORK FOR GENDER EQUALITY
EFFORTI (Evaluation Framework for Promoting Gender Equality in R&I) is a H2020 Research and Innovation Action project aimed at building an evaluation framework for gender equality measures across Europe. It seeks to analyse and model the influence of measures to promote gender equality on research and innovation outputs and on establishing more responsible and responsive RTDI (research, technology, development and innovation) systems.
The project will gather existing evaluation approaches and will design a common analytical framework to systematize and deepen knowledge on the scope, relevance, effectiveness and efficiency of gender equality policies on research and innovation. The evaluation framework will be tested with 25 case studies distributed across France, Austria, Sweden, Germany, Spain and Denmark, and made available as an online knowledge base and interactive tool.
With a total budget of just under 2 million €, EFFORTI is coordinated by the Fraunhofer Institute in Germany and involves partners from Denmark (University of Aarhus), Austria (Joanneum Research), Hungary (The Association of Hungarian Women in Science), and Luxembourg (Intrasoft) besides Gender and ICT in the IN3 (Universitat Oberta de Catalunya).
Start date: 1st of June 2016 – End date: 31st of May 2019
EFFORTI has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 710470
