GenPORT Launch

STOA Breakfast event at the European Parliament (8:00 – 9:00) Followed by multi-stakeholder interchanges at the Residence Palace Press Centre (9:30 – 15:00)

Background
GenPORT is an FP-7 project that is developing a portal to quality resources on gender and science, covering multiple interest areas and resource types. The portal will be formally launched on 21st April 2016. In addition to providing information about published research, studies, events, etc. the portal also offers access to experts and opportunities for sharing and exchanging knowledge and experience.

Overview
The Launch will begin at the European Parliament where you will hear from Members of the European Parliament and other policy makers, alongside GenPORT representatives and other Gender & STEM experts. The session will examine the European STEM and gender landscape and how GenPORT can support policy making. We will then relocate to nearby Residence Palace were we will hear from international bodies on their latest work in the field and give participants ample time for discussion.
