e-Discussion on Incorporating Gender into H2020 Climate & Environment Research
When researching the interaction between natural resources and humans, it is essential to incorporate a gender perspective to ensure non-biased results as established in Horizon 2020.
The e-discussion aims to bring together current approaches for incorporating gender into climate action and environmental research broadly understood. It aims to provide concrete examples how a gender perspective not only can be integrated into research projects under the H2020 call “Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials” but also contributes to produce research that is of better quality, higher impact and social relevance. The online discussion is aimed at both gender and non-gender experts, particularly researchers in natural and life sciences.
The discussion will take place over two days. During the first session, invited experts will outline recent developments for thinking together gender and climate action. The second session, then dives more specifically into concrete examples and ways to integrate a gender perspective into research. Participants are invited to actively participate in the discussion presenting their own research, methodologies or ask the expert panel directly.
